Trees are a precious resource. They maintain the earth’s atmosphere and sustain the environment. Trees also provide us with the raw materials for construction, furniture, cooking implements and paper products. They are an important source of food such as fruit, nuts and leaves. Everywhere we look we see the resources provided by trees, whether we live in a large city or a small rural village.

This edition of Footsteps considers how trees and forests can relieve poverty and contribute to health. It discusses the benefits of tree planting, sustainable management of trees, agroforesty (growing trees and crops together), beekeeping and medicinal plants.
