The scenic beauty of Louisiana is widely known, illustrating the common staple between the state’s largely varying landscapes- forests. With a highly diversified geography, Louisiana produces an abundance of species-rich forests, some of which include oak, pine, and cypress. Aesthetically pleasing, yes, but forests are also a major contributor to the well-being of the environment and sustainability of humans.
More than 75% of the fresh water we use throughout the world comes from forested wetlands!
Consider a forest clean-up activity or tree planting event, and don’t forget to celebrate your local forests!
Happy International Day of Forests!
