Get the Facts on Tree Cover in Indonesia

by Leah Feor July 11, 2016

We are on the 4th infographic about tree cover across the globe, and I think you'll find this one very interesting.  

Indonesia is about 1/5th the size on Canada, yet they have almost the same amount of metric tons of carbon stock in living forest biomass.  As you can see by the numbers, each region of the world has a unique ecosystem that works in its own special way.

Carbon sequestration is a topic that we will continue to cover in our blogs.  It is of vital importance to the health and balance of our environment.

Take a good look at the infographic that I've put together to summarize the data provided by Global Forest Watch.  

Tree Cover Infographic Indonesia

Indonesia is a country that has great potential to sequester a lot of carbon through their forests, but as you can see, tree cover loss is quite high.  This is due to intentional deforestation by industry, and forest fires.

If you are interested in learning more about other tools that Global Forest Watch has to offer, be sure to read their recent blog post about the new Fire Risk Map.
