On Earth, growing three trillion trees. Every year people are cut down about 15 billion

On our planet, growing more than three trillion trees. Scientists counted the trees of the international group, led by Thomas Crowther of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology.

Crowther Group determined that 12 thousand years that have passed since the beginning of the active farming of trees was 46% less - almost half. That is, once the number of trees reach 6 trillion, but the people have cut down about 3 trillion. And they continue to cut nearly 15 billion trees per year.

Most green spaces lost Russia - 365 thousand square kilometers of 8, 5 million of available. Forests destroyed mainly in Eastern Siberia and the Far East. For our country, followed by Canada, Brazil and Indonesia.
