The Deforestation Crisis and The Future Of Forests The consequences and implications of deforestation are major and the drastic decrease in forest and woodland areas across the world could lead to a crisis. Deforestation has been negatively affecting natural ecosystems, biodiversity, and the climate, with the heaviest levels of deforestation taking place in tropical rainforests. The Current Landscape Forest areas still cover around 30% of the world’s surface. 50% of the world’s forests are distributed in only five countries (Russia, Brazil, Canada, the United States of America, and China) and two-thirds (66%) of forests are in ten countries, but they are vanishing at a frightening rate. From 1990 to 2016, the world lost 502,000 square miles (1.3 million square kilometres) of forest area – this is an area similar to the size of South Africa. From 2004 – 2017 over 166,000 square miles, an area roughly the size of Morocco was lost https://www.pangea-si.com/deforestation-solutions-and-the-future-of-forests/
