Tree forests cover approximately 30 procent of the total land area of the world. Forests are a habitat for many organisms. About 90 procent of the world’s biodiversity is found in forests. They function as carbon storage and they are often reffered to as the lungs of the world. And forests are economically valuable too. Countries such as Brazil or Indonesia capitalize on their natural resources. Deforesting is a threat however and the percentage of the forested area as a part of the total land area is declining. Still there are many forest rich countries. Here’s a list of the most forested countries of the world!
