forest rangers, forest researchers and an off-road stroll through the wilderness of a remarkable national park. Stunning aerial shoots show fascinating landscapes across Germany.

Healthy forests act as habitats for plants and animals, store fresh water and have a balancing effect on the climate. They also provide jobs in rural regions and timber as a renewable resource. And they are open to everyone to enjoy recreation, sport and nature. The film â€œForests For Peopleâ€ is a German contribution to the International Year of Forests 2011. The film is commissioned by the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection.
