Forest Cover & Change
This map shows global 12-year annual forest loss and gain from Global Forest Watch in partnership with World Resources Institute. The data is the result of time-series analysis by University of Maryland Department of Geographical Sciences of 654,178 Landsat 7 ETM+ images in characterizing global forest extent and change from 2000 through 2012.

Strategic Approach to Forestry
PrintReleaf's approach to forestry begins with incorporating data and science through our integration with Global Forest Watch – a platform hosted and managed by the World Resources Institute.
Global Forest Watch is a dynamic platform which collects data through satellite imaging and ground intelligence to represent forest cover, loss, and gain around the world. Through this integration, we can identify those parts of the world that have been most significantly deforested or degraded. In turn, we work with our PrintReleaf Certified™ forestry partners to route our reforestation efforts in these areas of the world where reforestation may provide the most environmental and social impact.
We welcome you to explore our network of PrintReleaf Certified™ Global Forestry Projects by interfacing with our map of projects and respective profiles to learn more about the environmental and social impacts and benefits PrintReleaf provides.
