Well looking at this over a nice broad timeframe, an estimated 70 percent of Argentina’s forests have been lost in the last 100 years.
As of 2005, Argentina is down to only 20 million hectares of forest. For perspective, at the beginning of the 20th century it had 100 million hectares of forest making it down to only 1/5 of its original forest size. It’s the second largest country in South America and one of the most biologically diverse in the entire world. No doubt many animals were displaced and killed due to the effect of deforestation, much of which was encouraged by Argentina’s own government.
