Did you read our Tree Planting, Fruit Tree and Forest Conservation report for the 2022/23 season? If not, you will have missed learning what one of the Forest Conservation teams has been up to.
In Choma Hill, the Forest Conservation Committees continue to educate communities and carry out joint patrols with the Forestry Department to confiscate illegal charcoal.
Across 2022, they carried out 12 patrols and confiscated a combined 440 bags of charcoal, 61 bicycles and three motorbikes. In addition to these patrols, the Forestry Department carried out other patrols and activities. Over time, these deterrents are reducing the number of charcoal traffickers.
