Balochistan's Ancient Junipers: Bringing Sustainable Management to Dry-Zone Forests
The Ziarat forest in southwestern Pakistan is a fragile ecosystem. Forest health is poor because of harsh growing conditions and dwarf mistletoe infestations, and natural regeneration of the native juniper is sparse. Human use of the forest, especially fuelwood harvesting and grazing, has caused severe degradation. Yet because of its location, its advanced age, and the range of goods and services it provides, the Ziarat forest is a unique resource. The local people are aware of the tenuous condition of their forest, and attempts to manage this forest in a sustainable manner have begun.
