In Garden by the Bays ?
If you look at it on a satellite map, you'll notice that well over 1/4 the country is protected and/or otherwise forested.
I looked at a satellite image and I'm seeing a bit of green along the west coast. It's not a lot by area (and I think calling it "forest" might be generous) but when the country is so small to begin with, it doesn't take much to push the percentage up enough to drop it off the list.
I suspect it's a "near miss" kind of deal.
Basically, because this list is done by percentage, it pretty naturally excludes any of the really tiny countries.
I get where the missconception is comming from, with it being a city state with one of the largeat population densities in the world. But we live in an era when we can correct these missconceptions with one look at a satelite image or a single google search. But also, we live in an era when people are too lazy to do even that.
