Reforestation

“Since the 19th century, forests have grown back to cover 60% of the land within this area [the eastern third of the U.S.]. In New England, an astonishing 86.7% of the land that was forested in 1630 had been reforested by 2007, according to the U.S. Forest Service….In 2007, forests covered 63.2% of Massachusetts and 58% of Connecticut, the third and fourth most densely populated states in the country.”
