0% San Marino seems 'extreme' although I don't know the exact definition of forested area

My guess is that there has to be a large enough area of trees to qualify as a "forest" and that San Marino doesn't have enough space for that.

I removed Nauru, Monaco, San Marino and the Vatican after looking at satellite maps.

I looked at Vatican City on satellite maps too...I don't think carefully planted trees and gardens count as "forest." I would say that Vatican should still be a big fat zero. Or at least still be on the list somewhere.

doesnt matter if it doesnt have enough space, there is nothing in the description about that! so you removed legitimate answers therefore this quiz should not count towards the points system...

I tried "Vatican" "The Vatican" "Holy See" and every other combination I could think of. I haven't been there but I assume the Pope takes his walks through acres and acres of rolling forests...

Some of us don't read the comments before we take quizzes. Are you going to put the list of exceptions up top or do you plan on just replying to people with "see above comments"? ;)

There's no point in bringing up the same argument again and again when it has been mentioned many times above. As a general rule you should just read comments before you type yours so you don't state something twice.

A planted tree does not constitute a forest. Vatican needs to be back on the list!

Shocked about Pakistan. How does a large country with one of the worlds great river basins have that little forest? Especially considering none of it's neighbors are on the list. Did Pakistan at one time have forests and they got cut down?

Please keep in mind the source, the UN FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization). I've worked for some years on issues involving ag stats, enough to know that theirs are a running joke (as is the organization in general).

Since Haiti is notorious for its overforestation, I'm really surprised it wasn't here (even though it just missed the list anyway)

I tried most of these secondaries. I missed Malta, but really why does two fortress islands count but not a city block (Vatican) or a fully urbanized island (Singapore)? Or Nauru, which is just completely mined dead. I also missed Lesotho, I felt that was quite a strange one to be non-forested.

Surprised not to see Namibia or Australia. Granted I've never been to either, it seems they're always portrayed as mostly desert wastelands. Also interesting fact: Iceland was 97% forest when first settled, but has now fallen to below 0.5% due to deforestation

Australia has an enormous desert in the middle, but there's significant rainforest in the north as well. The whole scale of the place is crazy.

Confused that vatican, singapore and monaco not included. I kept thinking I had spelled them wrong. Would be nice if it was in the instructions that cities or certain countries are eliminated for whatever reason.

I didn't even think of those countries for some reason--just focused on desert countries. But I agree that they should either be included or there should be a note in the description telling us that they are excluded.
