Countries with the highest deforestation rates in the world

Nigeria is another country that has been affected by deforestation, with only 1% of its original forest remaining and 90% of its trees cut down. Since 1990, 36% of Nigeria's trees have been removed. The country's deforestation is mainly caused by illegal logging, agriculture, and infrastructure development. https://www.green.earth/blog/countries-highest-deforestation-rates

    Deforestation is a pressing issue that has serious implications for our planet. It is important for these countries to prioritize sustainable practices and conservation efforts to mitigate the negative impacts of deforestation. Additionally, international cooperation and support are needed to address this global problem effectively.

            Nigeria cannot afford to cut trees, not with all the oil they produce. Where are the carbon offsets going to come from?

                @elizbeth_gathigia Nigeria should have done away with deforestation and focus on planting more trees where they did not exist.They are back tracking.

                This is absurd, the government of Nigeria must take the necessary precautions to end this dangerous actions by all means. Planting trees must be a priority for the nation.
