Abstract

How has forest reserves in Enugu State faired given the sustainability- threatening signals surrounding it? Using the criteria and indicators (C & I) defined for the Nigeria context by Eboh (2000), this study evaluated the sustainability status of these forest reserves. Among other problems, this study reveals that Enugu State looses, on the average, about 2.01 hectares of forest reserve trees per annum. This calls for a total overhaul and improvement in the conservation and management strategy of these forest reserves.
