The continuous of clear felling of Acacia seyal at Gedaref State had changed the area covered by natural forests into a wide bare area. Local people depend mainly on forests products for their essential needs particularly at dry period. These practices encouraged them to cut trees to free the land for crop production even at khors, hills and mountains sides. This had negative results on the environment and local people have been subjected to the resulting impacts of desertification, soil deteriorated and decrease in production .This overall degradation affected forests, rangelands, wildlife and gum production.
