Community Forests
Great importance is attributed worldwide to the forest belt that encircles built-up areas and it is seen as an essential environmental resource for the quality of life in the adjacent communities. The name "forest" does not necessarily mean a widely forested area. The community forest is the green entirety of the city and its surroundings, and often these are woods, avenues, and parks.
