Goa has the 3rd best forest quality

Guess which state has the 3rd best forest quality in India? Goa!

It has the third-highest volume of trees in particular forested areas. This shows a productive and sustainable forest. It also shows that the forest is a carbon sink and delivers good ecosystem service.

The column of trees per hectare is almost double the national figure. Uttarakhand and Kerala are in 1st and 2nd place respectively.

By 2030, almost 30% of Goa’s forests are likely to be impacted by climate change. Forests play a very important role in dealing with climate change. They are a reservoir for carbon and can store more carbon than any other ecosystem.
