How Much Manmade CO2 is in the Atmosphere, Really?

There is a thought I have carried with me for a little while. When the Industrial Revolution started, the world used up a lot of wood. Coal enabled the world to ditch wood burning for more efficient coal. Entire regions in Europe had been deforested and many still are. About 200 years ago we reached peak deforestation. Our forests have not recovered to where they were before humanity but they are in a much better state than 200 years ago. All a tree is carbon bound in solid matter. Reforestation means more carbon in trees rather than the air. Was there more CO2 from wood-burning 200 years ago?
