Enter the amount of deforestation (acres) and the total time (years) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Deforestation Rate.

## Deforestation Rate Formula

DEFR = DEF / T

Variables:

- DEFR is the Deforestation Rate (acres/year)
- DEF is the amount of deforestation (acres)
- T is the total time (years)

To calculate the Deforestation Rate, divide the amount of deforestation by the total time period.

## How to Calculate Deforestation Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Deforestation Rate.

- First, determine the amount of deforestation (acres).
- Next, determine the total time (years).
- Next, gather the formula from above = DEFR = DEF / T.
- Finally, calculate the Deforestation Rate.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

amount of deforestation (acres) = 50000

total time (years) = 2
