Afforestation rate by region in France in 2019

The presence of forests on French territory is not heterogeneous. The urbanization of a territory naturally reduces the space for wooded areas. The Île-de-France region, which is highly urbanized, was one of the least wooded regions in France with 23 percent in 2019.
However, it were mostly the regions in the North-West, with Normandy, Brittany and the Pays-de-la-Loire that had the least wooded areas. These regions were also the granaries of France, where agricultural land occupied the largest part of the surface area.
In metropolitan France, Corsica and the Provence-Alpes-Côtes d'Azur region had the most forestation with almost two thirds of the island of beauty covered.
French Guyana, an overseas department, was the most wooded region in France with more than 95 percent of its territory covered by forests and Amazon jungle.
