International day of forest is celebrated around the world to ring a bell among the society about the importance of forests and the scores of benefits which are gained from them. The concept of celebrating a day every year as World Forestry Day originated at the 23rd General Assembly of the European Confederation of Agriculture in 1971. A forest just doesn’t mean trees but it’s an entire complex, a living community.
The reckless felling of trees is creating many problems in the surroundings so the need of the hour says that everybody should ponder seriously over this issue and stop activities that are against the welfare of forests. Everybody should actively involve themselves in prevention and creation of new forests. And situations of deforestation and over-gazing should be avoided.
