how many trees does an illegal logger cut down on average? Or just a regular logger if you don’t know.
There aren’t statistics online for how much the average logger cuts each year. However, I have attached a link below that shows the extent of damage illegal logging does. We are making progress against illegal logging in many countries, and we can only progress from where we are.
A 2005 report by the FAO concluded that primary forest area is reduced by 60,000 square kilometers a year. Tree density in primary forests is variable, ranging from 50,000-100,000 trees per square kilometer, so this amounts roughly to 3 to 6 billion trees per year (globally). Calculating a “logger average” would require the number of global loggers, which is something that isn’t readily documented. However, Greenpeace has offered some statistics on illegal logging:
In Indonesia it is estimated that up to 90 percent of logging is illegal.
In the Brazilian Amazon it is estimated that 60-80 percent of logging is illegal.
In Cameroon 50 percent of logging between 1999-2004 is estimated to have been illegal.
Up to an estimated 90 percent of logging is illegal in Indonesia.
An estimated 60-80 percent of logging is illegal in the Brazilian Amazon.
And an estimated 50 percent of logging between 199-2004 is thought to have been illegal in Cameroon.
