It is held annually to raise awareness of the importance of forests to people.

A forest is a plant formation that is made up mainly of trees and such a large area covered that it can develop a characteristic forest climate. Forests cover about 31 percent of global land area. On International Day of Forests the vital role forests play in poverty eradication, environmental sustainability and food security can be discussed internationally.
