- Abstract in English : This paper reviews the self-reporting of stress reduction by people who visited forest and woods, making some comparisons with the effects of non-wooded open space. It is concluded that there is evidence that people visiting woodlands find themselves able to reduce stress or at least to report that they feel less stressed and that women feel this more than men. Woods seem to offer this more than many other types of green space.
