Protected forests amount to 11.7% of the total forest area in Europe. Of these, 85% are designated to con- serve forest biodiversity, while 15% are designated to protect landscapes. Altogether, Europe’s protected forest areas cover about 127 million hectares. Europe was once covered by forest, from the Arctic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. The original forest covered probably 80-90% of the continent. The Gulf Stream and the North Atlantic Stream warm the continent.
