The vegetation Cuba
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The vegetation

The area of Cuba covered in forest actually only represents 8 % of the country. As well as the mahogany, cedar and ironwood trees, there are also the fruit trees bearing mango, guava, grapefruit, and avocado. It is said that Cuba has more than 70 million palm trees, this being the highest density in the world. The Cuban marshes are by far the largest in the whole of the West Indies.
