  • Deforestation in the North?!

    Etiketter: Forestry
    A recent EPI (Environmental Performance Index) report from the Yale University ranks countries according to the ecosystem vitality of their forests which was estimated based on the change in tree cover between the years 2000 and 2012. Countries get ranked according to a scoring system. The best score is 100 (countries where tree cover was not reduced). The worst is 0. The Nordic and Baltic countries scored as follows: Denmark 19; Estonia 9; Finland 12; Latvia 3; Lithuania 24; Norway 32; Sweden 14. Iceland got no score. The other high latitude countries are Canada (score 17) and Russia (score 35). Thus, the message from EPI seems to be that there is deforestation and unsustainable forestry in the north! / NBforest.info
