From Georgia, can not confirm, we like our forests. And our rolling hills. We're nature people, which explains why Atlanta is such a weird city.

NO gerogia has these rare things in their forests called bald spots. These contain a lot of the rare wildlife in georgia and the state holds some of the rarer trees from appalachia

When I was in Connecticut I was told it's the most forested state in US, but apparently it's not true. Any idea why they'd think that?

This state sucks so much we like to make up stuff about it to make ourselves feel better.

Did not expect to see some of these on here. Maybe extend the time just a little bit, especially because this one gets you thinking more, and when 4 answers are hovering around the 50% guessed mark. Interesting quiz though!

If any more time were added you would be able to guess all of the states.

It's kind of disappointing that the state that literally means "Penn's Woods" doesn't even crack the top ten. I wonder how high it ranks?

55.3% of Pennsylvania is forest, making it 11th as a percentage but that only totals about 66,000 km2. I'm actually from Pennsylvania so I can tell you it varies by region. Much of the land has been cleared for farming and development but the north-central part of the state is still the "Pennsylvania Wilderness". There are probably animals in those woods that have never seen a human before.

Well it's actually because Atlanta's tree coverage is around 37% because of the cities dedication to keeping lotsa trees around even when developing.

No Alaska?

Half of Alaska is tundra, so that's why it isn't on this list. But it probably has the most total forested land

I live in Vermont, and it's basically just a forest with a couple of tiny towns and like three tiny cities in it. Not sure how that could be only 3/4 forested. I wonder who makes these measurements and what their methodology is.
