Forest area includes both forest land cover (forest land covered by trees), and forest land use (both forest cover and the forest land temporarily without trees).

Forest cover is a fundamental measure for the monitoring of state and trends of forest ecosystems, forest resources, their management and uses.

The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) definition for forest land is “Land spanning more than 0.5 hectares with trees higher than 5 metres and a canopy cover of more than 10 percent. It does not include land that is predominantly under agricultural or urban land use.“
