Annual net change in forest area in the world 1990-2005

Between 2000 and 2010, wooded area in the EU increased by 2%, through natural expan-sion and afforestation (i.e. conversion from other land uses into forest). Only four countries recorded a fall in their areas of wooded land, with Denmark recording the largest reduction (-5%) ahead of Portugal, Slovenia and Finland. Europe, and the EU in particular, is the only part of the world where forest area has been steadily increasing since 1990 (see Figure 1).
