This paper is an attempt to find interdependencies between selected variables of sustainable development and forestation rate. The scope of paper included 16 Polish Voivodships in the period 2004-2016. The descriptive method supplemented by tools of descriptive statistics has been used (Pearson Correlation Coefficient). Research results indicated above all high interdependency between forestation rate and EU funds for EU programmes and projects in Podlaskie, Śląskie and Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodships. Moreover, Voivodeships received support for afforestation in accordance with the arable land available for afforestation (land of lass V and VI). Voivodeships in which land of classes V and VI constituted about 20% of their area (Dolnośląskie, Lubuskie, Śląskie,
Warmińsko-Mazurskie, and Zachodniopomorskie) received significant financial resources from the European Union for afforestation.
