Around one third of Switzerland is under forest cover. Forests provide a habitat for plants and animals, supply wood, provide protection against natural hazards, are a popular space for recreation, and provide many other services. As well as being a renewable energy source, wood is also a climate-neutral and innovative building material with excellent characteristics.
