Live for a Better, Greener, and Healthier Tomorrow
Over thirty six hundred thousand industries depend directly on trees and forests worldwide and over a million of them, indirectly. The broad figures are just a measure to show how dependent we are on our forests and if we lost them all, we will be zeroed. Indigenous population is scarce but they exist somewhere, losing their identity in urban population. They sustain their livelihood by forests. Forests provide habitat to animals and humans without asking anything in return; just peace is what it takes. But peace in recent history of human nature has become a not plausible deniability, which is making things worse. Not to mention numerous goods that trees give us; they also give us a place to live. They are vital habitats for animals and insects that are important for food chain, and the nature as a whole. Trees provide the right micro climate for small forest dwelling creatures. Overall, trees are an important natural resource for power and construction. However, the reason for making our ecosystem work well is that it provides us with fresh and clean air, diverse species, life sustainability, natural beauty, and last but not the least, livelihood. So, we should be planting more trees than we plan to destroy.
Leave Room for Future Generations, but Do Not Desolate Wastelands
More than one billion people sustain their livelihood through forests. You need oxygen to live; it is the sole need of your body. An acre of land in one year can produce enough oxygen for eighteen people throughout their lives. People living on hill side largely depend on tress due to the impact of erosion, which is caused by lack of forests, as roots of trees hold the soil from sliding. Not just wood and fruits, trees stabilize the temperature, clean air, provide oxygen, prevent soil erosion, provide economic opportunities and the good things that they do to the environment are endless. Humans as well as animals depends on forest; it gives them place to live and grow, to breed next generations, to make life more comfortable and what do we give them back, cutting and slashing, chopping and burning, ruining land and atmosphere. The increasing demand for forest goods and materials has risen drastically as the population index has gone up in the past years, but you can still have the chance to save your world by giving something back to our Mother Nature.

Neck of the Woods in Woods
The ancient time speaks about the human civilization in forests and nearby areas. But these practices are also exercised in the modern age. There is a huge population who are dependent on the forest resources for the existence of their livelihood. Forest or trees fulfill the basic needs of the local communities of the peoples living nearby.
- They get fuel wood for cooking their food
- They get fodder for their cows, goats, etc.
- They get their ‘vitamin-for-life’, fruits, from these trees.
- They get non timber forest produce like Amla, Tendu Patta which they collect and then sell them to earn money. This planting trees provide them a job by which they can earn money
- Many farming, agricultural needs and livelihoods based on land are interlinked with forests.
- Forest products are vital to meet the basic requisite of the rural people to get access to water, fuel, food and medicine.
The culture of people dependent on forests is an evidence of traditional forest techniques which have been part of our culture over thousands of years. Thus forest plays an evident role in nurturing the lives of the poor.
