Some translations:

Aforestación = forestation
Deforestación = deforestation


Countries in the Americas only:

México = Mexico
Canadá = Canada
Estados Unidos = United States


Former (or current) powers in the Americas:

Países Bajos = The Netherlands
España = Spain
Inglaterra = United Kingdom
Francia = France
Dinamarca = Denmark




Latin America & The Caribbean

https://apps1.semarnat.gob.mx:8443/d...cosistemas.pdf

Translations:

Haití = Haiti
Islas Vírgenes (EEUU) = American Virgin Islands
Belice = Belize
Panamá = Panama
Santa Lucía = Saint Lucia
Perú = Peru
Brasil = Brazil
México = Mexico
Islas Vírgenes, Inglaterra = British Virgin Islands
Guadalupe = Guadaloupe
Guyana Francesa = French Guiana
Islas del Caribe = Caribbean Islands
Trinidad y Tobago = Trinidad and Tobago
Rep. Dominicana = Dominican Rep.


As can be seen in the second graph, the Spanish Caribbean is seeing an increase of forest cover on all three islands.

Puerto Rico had a forest growth of approximately 0.7%.
US Virgin Islands had a forest decrease of approximately -0.6%.

United States had a forest growth of approximately 0.2%.
