Protected Forests

Caroline Narayan

Protected forests are areas of special environmental, scientific, cultural or other importance. Protected forest areas aim either to conserve forest biological diversity, i.e. the diversity of genes and species in forests and the diversity of forest ecosystems, or to protect landscapes.

Protected forests amount to about 12% of the total forest area in Europe. Of these, 85% are designated to conserve forest biodiversity, while 15% are designated to protect landscapes. Altogether, Europe's protected forest areas cover about 127 million hectares.
