Forest area vs. land area in the EU, 2011

Just over two-fifths of the EU’s land area is classified as wooded land (i.e. as ‘forests’ or ‘other wooded land’). The five largest wooded areas (in Sweden, Spain, Finland, France and Germany) collectively account for 62.4% of the wooded land in the EU (see Figure 2). Focusing on the narrower definition of forests, Finland and Sweden each account for around 15% of the EU total.
