Does Australia cut down a lot of trees?

    Not really.  Between 1990 and 2010 Australia deforested about 3.4% of their existing forest, however, Australia also reforested more than 1 million hectares of cut down forest.  Approximately 19.4% of Australia is forested, with about 3.5% of that forest being comprised of primary forest, which is some of the most biodiverse and carbon-dense forest in the world.

    Australia’s volume of logging is minor when you consider that the world’s heaviest logging countries have cut down upwards of 30% of their forests over the last 15 years.
