[automatically translated] The stock of trees is part of the dowry that our Earth has offered man since its appearance; precious and essential gift, without which the existence of our planet would definitely other developments. On 20 December 2006, during the 83rd plenary meeting, the General Assembly of the United Nations, taking up the proposal of Croatia, adopted a resolution proclaiming 2011 the International Year of Forests to raise awareness on global action in support of forest management sustainable, protection, enhancement and development of trees and forests. Highlighting how these are vital to the preservation of biodiversity, mitigating the effects of climate change and to human life. How not to grasp, therefore, the opportunity to speak again of the trees and the great importance that these have for the life of our planet? The stock of trees is part of the dowry that our Earth has offered man since its appearance; precious and essential gift, without which the existence of our planet would definitely other developments. In the certainty that they will never be sufficient initiatives to raise awareness and the words all the people of the world to become aware of the value of trees and forests have had and continue to have for the whole world, I materialized, with this volume, my great desire to learn more about this wonderful world, complex, full of charm and mystery that has kidnapped the hearts of those who, like me and before me, have you come across this meeting.
