ROME, Italy, November 15, 2005 (ENS) - The most comprehensive assessment of the world's forests and forestry to date finds that every year about 13 million hectares (32 million acres) are lost due to deforestation. The latest report of the UN agency responsible for monitoring forest lands finds that at the same time, the rate of net forest loss is slowing down due to new planting and natural expansion of existing forests.
