CONSERVATION, CLASSIFICATION AND SIZES OF FOREST
SIZES OF THE FOREST:
Fragment size and in continuous forest, it has small and medium size. In Mgbabo Village the forest in that particular area has no any definite size, the forest is surrounded in the middle of the village,
but in estimate been given in the elders of the villages said that it is about 0.156mm in length and the species and trees grown in that particular forest hard no any definite growth and size. From the knowledge I had from Mgbabo and other forest, Mgbabo forest is seen to be the most beneficial forest forest given to the village. One Mr. Okerokwo said that the forest was created before Ebonyi state that it had been in existence and farmers benefit from it and also that the hunters hunt on the Mgbabo forest located in Ebonyi state in the middle of Presco Campusus by Okafor N.E(1964)
Harvey L., (2008). Described that forest product is any material derived from a forest for commercial use, such as timber, paper on large forage for livestock. Wood, by far the construction of building or as raw material, in the form of wood pulp that is used in the production of paper. All other non-wood products drive from forest resource, comprising a board variety of other forest product are collectively described as non-timber forest product are woody, fuel wood, poles, wood derived e.g sponge and charcoal.
CLASSIFICATION AND BOTANICAL CHARATERISTICS OF PLANT USE
According to “Hipp dilemma” a botanist classified a plant based on how they are been produced.
vFood (carbohydrates, fats, protein, sugar and vitamins etc.)
vFood for livestock.
vSpices and condiments.
vFibres (clothing, baskets, bruhes, paper, hats etc.)
vOils (drying oils, semi drying oils, vegetable oils etc.)
vEssential oils or voluntal oil are found in so many domination of plant, it is extracted from tissue in various ways, depending on the quality and stability of the composition some of the aromatic trees or flower produce essential oils and make every product so easy to produce such as
Drugs and medicine various industrial use of product such as timber from forest products. And a lot of benefits comes from forest product both commercial and industrial aspect.
CONSERVATION OF FOREST IN MGBABO URBAN AREA OF METROPILS
In 1986 conversation of forest came into existence under biological diversity, include forest genetic resource, is essential for sustaining the productive value of forests, for maintaining the health and vitality of forest ecosystem and thereby, the maintaining their productive and environmental roles.
The greatest threat is forest and the diversity house in them is the conversion of forest in to other land use.
Increasing pressure from human populations and sustainability of resource.
IMPORTANCES/BENEFITS OF FOREST PRODUCTS TO HUMAN AND ENVIRONMENT.
The chief economic product of forest is timber but the economic benefits, in terms of climate control, pollution abatement, and wildlife maintaince have rarely been calculated, the economic importance of nontinizer forest product is also increasing. The economic forest is also vital a watershed. Because of the thick human’s layer, loose soil and soil-relating powers of the trees long root, forests are vitally importance preserving adequate water supplies.
Almost all water ultimately feeds from rivers and lakes and from forest-derived water tables. In addition, the forest provides shelter from wildlife, recreation and irreplaceable supplies of oxygen and soil nutrients.
Deforestation, particularly in the tropical rainforest, has become a major environmental concern, as it can destabilize the earth’s temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide levels. Efforts to control deforestation, including those at United Nation Conference on Environmental and Development, remain ineffective in 1992.
The relationship between humans and the forest had culminated at various time in word storage of great political and economic importance and which had ultimately to the development of forest as a scientific discipline.
Early attempts to conserve and sustain wood supplied were largely in unsuccessful, and forest and natural forest are still quickly disappearing. Natural forests are being converted to commercial plantation forest to produce more wood of better quality.
Natural also provides many NWFPS vital local ministry increased medicinal and industrial knowledge has also recognized the importance of NWFPS to support new medicines, new molecules and genes to engineer new product
