The Northern Regional Forestry Manager, Ebenezer Djaney Djagbletey has hinted that a total area of 3,309 hectares of forest reserve and off-forest reserve were planted in the region last year.

He also claimed that over 4,305 people had also been engaged in the various plantations in line with this as well. This came to light when the Parliamentary committee on Land and Forestry paid a courtesy call on the Regent of Dagbon, Kampakuya-Na Yakubu Abdulai Andani, at his palace.

Kampakuya-Na Andani raised concern about the high rate of tree felling in some communities and said more efforts should be made for people to replace the trees they cut down.

Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Land and Forestry,Mr Albert Abongo urged traditional rulers to encourage large scale tree plantation development especially, the Teak tree which has great economic potential, in their areas.

The Committee members are on a two-day inspection tour of some plantations projects undertaken by the Forestry Commission under the National Forest Plantation Development Programme (NFPP) in Damongo of the West Gonja district and the Yendi Municipality, all in the Northern Region.
