Supplementary notes

The source provides this definition of forest areas: "Forest refers to land spanning more than 0.5 hectare (0.005 km2) and a canopy cover of more than 10 percent, or trees able to reach these thresholds in situ. This includes land from which forests have been cleared but that will be reforested in the foreseeable future. This excludes woodland or forest predominantly under agricultural or urban land use and used only for recreation purposes."
The source does not specify the date of publication. The release date given is the last updated date provided by the source.
