You don’t necessarily have to be a “tree hugger” to care about trees. The health of our trees and forests is a great indicator of the overall health of Earth, its atmosphere, and its biosphere. And seeing that Earth is currently the only planet we have to inhabit, it makes sense for us to all take a greater interest in the things that make for a healthier planet…including its trees and forests.
Ever heard of Global Forest Watch (GFW)? It’s an open-access online platform that’s chock-full of tools to help you keep your finger on the pulse of the world’s forests. Since being launched in 2014, Global Forest Watch has been accessed by more than 1.5 million people, and GFW has also earned several awards and accolades along the way.
