    In order for the forest to no longer shrink, the decrease in deforestation would have to be at least 100%.

      Or the rate of reforestation must be greater than the rate of deforestation.

        I assumed the deforestation was a net measurement to begin with. Good point though, maybe I shouldn’t have.

        That ignores the complexity of forests, however (and not just your comment).

        Young forests aren’t nearly as diverse, it takes a long time for the complexity to come back. Otherwise we would just plant shitty pine trees everywhere (a terrible idea!)
