How many trees make a forest?

It seems bizarre, but it's surprisingly hard to agree on what should count as a forest, or deforestation. If we can't agree on what deforestation is and how to measure it, we can't stop it. I wrote a blog post about this surprising problem for Mongabay:

It explains the issue, and why The Accountability Framework (a coalition of NGOs providing guidance on how companies can set and implement credible deforestation-free commitments) is so critical to solve it.
