There are many protected forests in the US. There are 3,063 IUCN categorized forests which are protected. The categories that designate a protected are are: Ia. Strict Nature Reserve, Ib. Wilderness Area, II. National Park, III. National Monument or Feature, IV. Habitat/Species Management Area, V. Protected Landscape Seascape (IUCN website).
However 24.7% of America’s land area is forested, and National Parks consist of only 2.7 % of the total land area. The other categories above aren’t accounted for in that percentage so I don’t know how much of that 24.7% is protected.
