Trees cover 4 billion hectares of our planet. It’s one of the most vibrant landscapes that changes constantly throughout the year. Stretching well into the northern territories, it sees hot summers and cold winters, and provides sanctuary to a diverse array of animal life. Some animals use the forests only during the summer months but there are many species that use the forest year round. For those, winters can be hard but it’s worth it when spring sun brings on the fresh growth and transforms the lush forest.
