The striking and rich materialities of trees and forest landscapes can become entangled in the creation of both individual and collective identities in many ways. This is often articulated through ideas of place and landscape and can operate on intermeshing scales which span from local to global. The differing ways identity is performed through trees and forest landscapes, be it through work, history, culture or politics, are thus a complex outcome of entanglement between the human and the trees and forests themselves. Their physical form and lively materiality also play a part in the bonds that exist between peoples and forests in many differing forms. In this chapter, linkages between forests and identity are explored in a number of interrelating ways.
