Good News: The Deforestation Rate Has Been Cut in Half

The rate of deforestation has been cut in half since the 1990s.  The forests are still shrinking, but at a slower rate.

In the temperate zone, forests seem to be actually rebounding.

One unexpected fruit of the collapse of the Soviet Union is that the clear-cut forests on collective farms are now growing back since the farms were privatized again.
