International day of forests March 21st 2017 - playlist
#InternationalDayOfForests #trees #treenews #loveforests
The International Day of Forests was established on the 21st day of March, by resolution of the United Nations General Assembly on November 28, 2012.
Each year, various events celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests, and trees outside forests, for the benefit of current and future generations. Countries are encouraged to undertake efforts to organize local, national, and international activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns, on International Day of Forests.
The Secretariat of the United Nations Forum on Forests, in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization, facilitates the implementation of such events in collaboration with governments, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests, and international, regional and sub-regional organizations.
The Forest Garden Tour - Agroforestry and permaculture with Martin Crawford.
From LondonTreeSurgeons YouTube channel.
Agroforestry is a land use management system in which trees or shrubs are grown around or among crops or pastureland. It combines shrubs and trees in agricultural and forestry technologies to create more diverse, productive, profitable, healthy,, ecologically sound, and sustainable land-use systems.
Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design principles centred on simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems. Permaculture was developed, and the term coined by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in 1978.
Rewilding - Pine Martens could help save Red Squirrels
New video for a new playlist!
The European pine marten (Martes martes), known most commonly as the pine marten in Britain, and less commonly also known as pineten, baum marten, or sweet marten, is an animal native to Brirain and Northern Europe belonging to the mustelid family, which also includes mink, otter, badger, wolverine and weasel.
Rewilding is large-scale conservation aimed at restoring and protecting natural processes and core wilderness areas, providing connectivity between such areas, and protecting or reintroducing apex predators and keystone species. Rewilding projects may require ecological restoration or wilderness engineering, particularly to restore connectivity between fragmented protected areas, and reintroduction of predators where extirpated.
