It all depends on the make up of each rainforest and if there are no further anthropogenic threats to the forests. However, studies have shown that rainforests could regenerate faster than you may think. Data estimated that it could take 65 years for the forests to recover basic surface area coverage. However, the density and various species that make rainforests truly complete could take thousands of years to regenerate.
Rainforests can regenerate just like any other plant and eco-system. The plants drop their seeds. The wind, birds, and small animals move the seeds around. It rains, and things grow. This makes homes for more animals, which then regenerates the food-web and BAM! You got yourself a rainforest.
However, this obviously takes years.
