Illegal chainsaw operations has been one of the major challenges confronting the sustainable management of forests in Ghana. Through monitoring activities, local community members in the Sikaniasem area have detected on-going illegal felling of trees in the Krokosue Hills Forest Reserve near their community. As a result, the local community members are calling on the Forest Services Division of the Forestry Commission of Ghana, to as a matter of urgency deploy the rapid response team to the area to help stop the illegal activities. Preserving the forest is very essential if we are to seriously fight the menace of climate change which is adversely affecting the livelihoods of local communities.
