EarthTrends Country Profile - Forests, Grasslands, and Drylands - Angola, from WRI: Forest Area and Change Total forest area includes both natural forests and plantations. Total Forest is defined as land with tree crown cover of more than 10 percent of the ground and area of more than 0.5 hectares. Tree height at maturity should exceed 5 meters. These forest statistics are based primarily on forest inventory information provided by national governments. In the case of the tropical region, inventory information is supplemented by a remote sensing survey. If only limited or out-dated inventory data are available, combination of linear projections and expert opinion techniques were applied to fill in data gaps. View full technical notes on-line at
