- Forestry help us explore and relax.
Our innate attraction to forests, part of a phenomenon known as “biophilia,” is still in the relatively early stages of scientific explanation. We know biophilia draws humans to water, woods and other natural scenery, though, and exposure to forests has been shown to boost creativity, suppress ADHD, speed up recovery, and encourage meditation and mindfulness. It may even help us live longer.
- They’re pillars of their communities.
Like the famous rug in “The Big Lebowski,” forests really tie everything together — and we often don’t appreciate them until they’re gone. Beyond all their specific ecological perks (which can’t even fit in a list this long), they’ve reigned for eons as Earth’s most successful setting for life on land. Our species probably couldn’t live without them, but it’s up to us to make sure we never have to try. The more we enjoy and understand forests, the less likely we are to miss them for the trees.
