dc.descriptionA GAZ Proceedings article on peri- urban deforestation in Zimbabwe.en_GB
dc.description.abstractDeforestation is the removal or destruction of woody plant species, or of forest and woodland vegetation types. This may be in the form of selective felling of trees from woodlands or the entire clearance of wooded areas, (Whitlow, 1979). Deforestation in the peripheral areas of Harare is perpetrated by low-income families resident in the.city’s townships (Low-income residential areas). The principal cause is gathering woodfuel for cooking and heating. Therefore, the process is a direct result of an energy crisis among the low-income families. Similar occurrences have been reported in other Third World urban centres (Morgan, 1978; Le Houeron and Lundholm, 1976; and F.A.O., 1974).en_GB
