Best forest quotes

A forest is simply a large area of land dominated by trees. However, trees aren’t the only living things present in these areas. Forests are home to thousands of the world’s animals that rely on these precious ecosystems for survival. 

Besides animals, forests also offer millions of people homes and means of livelihood. In essence, forests provide a form of natural and vital organic infrastructure for life on Earth. They support us and countless other species. Forests also keep the earth cool and clean up dirty air. 

As human impact continues to grow, forests play a role in mitigating climate change. However, this function will only be as effective as our protection and preservation of the natural world.

Forests also prevent flooding. The trees absorb water and help prevent soil loss and property damage due to flooding.

Keeping close to nature's heart means spending time outdoors in the woods or forests for many people. These forest quotes below mirror our love and appreciation for Mother Nature.
