That’s about the half the size of Connecticut (or about 6,000 square kilometers), but spread out over all of Canada.
In comparison, more than five times that area is disturbed annually by natural causes such as forest fires, insects and disease. Canada’s boreal forest is 100% regenerate, about 75% of the area harvested through forestry grows back naturally. And the other 25%? That grows back as a result of the prompt reforestation work done via seeding and tree planting.
