I've a report of UNDP about Myanmar forestry. According to it, Myanmar is the most forested country in Southeast Asia, but forest decreased from 58% (1990) to 47% (2010) (UNDP Report,2010). I'll send you from PM. 

But the data is not so uptodate!

With development of the country and illegal logging I believe this will continue to decrease and is probably lower than 47% by now. I just hope that Myanmar can enforce forest protection and not end up like Indonesia with huge deforestation, forest is important for us and for biodiversity. Myanmar still has a very rich fauna and flora, let's see if they can protect them. I think this is a major challenge of Myanmar, develop while safeguarding wildlife...
