These answers might look different if the criteria was total amount of tree mass. Check out this map. While states like Michigan might have a lot of forest cover, you can see that the forests of the Pacific Northwest are much, much denser. I'm not sure if this is due to climate or the relative age of the forests.

Probably both. Also, remember that the tree species common in the eastern half of the US don't get as big as many of those common on the west coast - even exceptional individual trees that might be centuries old.

Taking the scale (= degree of green) into consideration, I would argue that Washington is one of the top states and potentially also New York and Pennsylvania have more timberland than those South-East states, don't?

Yeah, over 15% of Wyoming is National Forest land, but less than 10% of Wyoming is forested. Go figure.

10% seems about right looking at the satellite map.

That's the Great Plains. There aren't many trees out there.

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?

Maybe it has the largest percentage of forest to total land area, but Connecticut is a tiny state.

I agree. There's a whole lot of trees here, but not a whole lot of space for them.

Wrong. It might have the most total trees but it ranks 13th by percentage.

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 number one by percentage, a whopping 89%. It's just too small.

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.

I'm shocked Washington wasn't on this list.
