Romania

Forests cover 30% of Romania’s land area, of which nearly 10% are plantations. Forest cover has been increasing over the period 1990-2015, at an annual rate of 0.3%; much of this expansion took place between 2010 and 2015 (FAO, 2015).

Illegal logging is a problem in the country. As an EU Member State, Romania is required to implement the EU Timber Regulation, which came into force in March 2013.
