Fun TREE Fact:
Canada’s 402 million hectares of forest and other wooded land account for about 10% of the world’s forest cover. In 2005, an estimated 56,000 ha were deforested in Canada. Over the past 30 years, except for large hydroelectric projects in the late 1970s and early 1980s, annual deforestation rates have been decreasing.
