Abstract

The finding that tree densities in the Kano region are high, and have increased over the decade following the early 1970s drought, is balanced by moderate to rapid rates of decline recorded in areas more remote from the city. Conversion of shrub and woodland to agricultural use is seen as a positive trend in wood fuel production terms, due to the ability of farmland trees to grow rapidly and reach a very large size. -from Author
