The most wooded country on earth?



  An example of woodland deep in Suriname
Thomas Schoch / Wikipedia

Answer: Suriname

If you want forest near acres, you must defeat Russia. The expansive country also has expansive forests with an astounding 3.1

million square miles of forest land – compared to only 1.2 million square miles of forest in the United States. However, as a percentage of the landmass, Russian forests account for only 49.4 percent of the country (and forests in the US only account for 33.8 percent).

If you want to visit a country where the whole country is practically a giant forest, then I have to pay a visit to South America and drop in to Suriname – the smallest sovereign state on the continent. Formerly a Dutch colony, the tiny country is known for bauxite mines, rice, bananas, shrimp and a thriving eco-tourism industry.

This eco-tourism industry draws its strength from the vast amount of largely untouched tropical rainforests in the region. Shocking 90.2 percent (57,050 square miles) of the 64,000 square miles of Suriname are forested, making Suriname the most densely forested nation in the world in terms of area.
