Abstract:

Forests in Tanzania occupy nearly half of the country's total land area. Most of the forestland is classified as woodland, with smaller areas in tropical high forest, mangrove forest, and plantations. An increasing share of industrial wood is harvested from the plantations, although pitsawing of native timber remains an important component of lumber production. About 97 percent of total roundwood consumption is for fuelwood and charcoal, and much of the country's current emphasis in forestry is on the establishment of village woodlots and agroforestry plots. Education in forestry and forest products is provided by two technical institutes and one university. Wildlife remains an important part of Tanzania's natural resource heritage, and the country supports some of the largest remaining populations of many African game species.
