Q: Differences between lumbering in zaire and nigeria
A: Lumbering in Equatorial Africa: Nigeria and the Congo (Zaire) Lumbering can be defined as a process by which wood is selected, fallen and transported from the forest to the sawmill where the logs are cut into planks. [ It is a well-known economic activity in the forest regions of Nigeria and the Congo. Areas of Lumbering *. Nigeria: Edo, Delta, Ondo, Ogun, Cross River, Oyo and Osun States. *.
The Congo: Ituri and the Equator Province. Species of Lumbered Woods *. Nigeria: Iroko, mahogany, obeche, sapele, ironwood, rosewood, ebony, etc. are the species that are mainly found in Nigeria. *. The Congo: Okoume (soft wood) is used for making plywood while limba and mahogany are used for construction works and furniture making. Factors Favouring Lumbering 1) The areas of lumbering in the two countries experience high temperatures, with a mean annual temperature of about 27 degree and a high annual rainfall ranging from 1500 to 3000mm, this favours the growth to big trees. 2) Talk hardwood trees grow extensively in the forests of Nigeria and Congo. 3) There is a high demand for timber in the construction industry and furniture making. 4) There are rivers and lagoons (Rivers Niger and Ethiope and coastal creeks and lagoons in Nigeria and Congo with its tributaries) which make the transportation of logs easy. 5) The policy of the governments in the two countries to have forest reserves and encourage afforestation also favours lumbering. 6) It is relatively cheap to go into lumbering because it is not capital intensive and it requires little skill. Methods of Lumbering 1) The lumbermen search the forest to identify particular species. 2) The identified trees are felled by axes or hand-saws, but powered saws have been recently introduced. 3) Any tree with buttress roots is normally cut with the aid of a platform on which the lumbermen stand. ]
