Forest Cover

Forests worldwide are in a state of flux, with accelerating losses in some regions and gains in others. Given the recognized importance of forest ecosystem services, quantification of global forest extent and change is needed. This map displays the tree cover in the year 2000. Tree cover is defined as canopy closure for all vegetation taller than 5m in height and is expressed as a percentage per output grid cell, in the range 0–100.
