Summary[edit | edit source]
On Old Earth, forests were a great source of bounty, providing wood for fire, tools and shelter, and also home to many animals used for sustenance and clothing through the ages. While not as critical for survival on this planet, native forests still supply Food and raw materials for production.
As your city grows there will be a temptation to cut down the forests for farmland, but a wise leader will always leave some standing — for productivity and to lift his people’s spirits.
Also, military Units stationed in forests receive a significant defensive bonus. Tiles with forests covering them always yield additional food and production, regardless of the underlying terrain type.
