European Forests: Central to the World We Live in

EFI has released a new multimedia video on European forests. Called “European Forests: Central to the World We Live in”, it gives an overall picture of Europe’s most versatile ecological infrastructure, tracing a path from south to north and from west to east. As we tour around Europe, we ask why forests continue to be so important to each region, even in the 21st century.

I am happy to be the first person to comment on the video clip that you uploaded 14 hours ago. Indeed, I found it to be very interesting and educative as it covers many aspects, within few minutes, on the types and importance of forests of Europe (better understood using the Total Economic Value Model that considers the direct use value, indirect use value, option use value, existence value and bequest value), the threats to forests of Europe and what needs to be done in order to sustainably manage such forests, which could provide good lessons to other geographical regions. In view of the fact that most residents in Europe live in urban areas, I had wrongly assumed that the forest cover had tremendously decreased during the recent decades. Besides, I had thought that the scandinavian countries of Sweden and Finland were leading in production of good timber as opposed to Germany and France!
