Welcome to Focus on Forests
I'm the helping chameleon and I am your guide through the website. Some words are highlighted, if you click on them I will try to explain what they mean. I also appear from time to time with useful links and facts.

The aim of this site is to tell you about some of the issues facing forests around the world today.
