Trees and forests provide us with materials and services that can be renewed indefinitely as long as the woodlands remain healthy.

Non-tangible benefits such as clean air and water, recreation and health benefits and biodiversity are products we all take for granted but would quickly miss if the supply dried up. Material resources such as the wood itself . (SEE WOOD MODULE) foliage for decoration fruits, mushrooms and medicines all come from forests some through trading mechanisms, some seen as free benefits. Wood is the only renewable raw material used in building and manufacturing.
