Related Facts & Figures
The large rise in the Human population around the World has led to many governments deciding to do away with huge chunks of their natural forested habitat, in order to make way for new towns and cities, and for cheap farmland to service large multi-national corporations. There are still many areas of all continents which are densely forested, but the overall rate of de-forestation continues to rise globally, with the biggest forests in the World continually being eaten away from all angles.

Population Growth

Our population is growing at a massive rate, and it looks set to continue, which will bring a whole host of new problems, while making some current issues much harder to deal with. Particularly important issues include finding better ways to utilse the land at our disposal, creating better living conditions for many, and working out what to do with waste

[1] "ENVIRONMENTAL INDICATORS: Forests" United Nations Statistics Division - Statistics compiled by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The figures above relate to 2007, the latest year which the FAO have released figures for. last updated by the United Nations in August 2009, last retrieved by BlatantWorld.com on April.17.2010
The UN/FAO use this as a definition of the term 'Forest': Forest includes natural forests and forest plantations. It is used to refer to land with a tree canopy cover of more than 10 per cent and area of more than 0.5 ha. Forests are determined both by the presence of trees and the absence of other predominant land uses. The trees should be able to reach a minimum height of 5 m. Young stands that have not yet but are expected to reach a crown density of 10 percent and tree height of 5 m are included under forest, as are temporarily unstocked areas. The term includes forests used for purposes of production, protection, multiple-use or conservation (i.e. forest in national parks, nature reserves and other protected areas), as well as forests stands on agricultral lands (e.g. windbreaks and shelterbelts of trees with a width of more than 20 m), and rubberwood plantations and cork oak stands. The term specifically excludes stands of trees established primarily for agricultural production, for example fruit tree plantations. It also excludes trees planted in agroforestry systems.
