After just a quick observation of the map shown above, isn't the Dundas Valley Conservation Area excluded from the calculations?

They are controlled by the Hamilton Region Conservation Authority, and have an area of 12km2, or 1,200ha. If you add that to the 4325.06 mentioned above, you realize a total forest cover area of 5525ha, or a pretty respectable 24% forest cover based on 23,054ha in the Hamilton area.

While there is always room for improvement, upon initial investigation, it doesn't look like we're doing as poorly as we are being portrayed.
