In the Republic of Azerbaijan forested areas cover 1,021 hectares of the land, which is 11.8% of the country’s territory. In the 18th-19th centuries however, this figure stood at 30- 35%. The per capita forest area is 0.12 hectares, which is 4 times less (0.48 hectares) than the average international indicator.

Forests are distributed unevenly throughout the territory of Azerbaijan. Thus, almost 85% of all forests are located in the mountainous region of the country, while only 15% of the forests are in the lowland. It should be noted that 261 thousand hectares of the country’s forest fund are located in an area occupied by Armenia.
