Commercial exploitation and conservation of Prunus africana in Cameroon's afromontane forests


Commercial exploitation and conservation of Prunus africana in Cameroon's afromontane forests



Arboricultural Journal 26(1): 65-76

Prunus africana, a multipurpose and highly medicinal afromontane tree has been exploited for its bark for over two decades now in afromontane Cameroon by commercial exploiters under licences from government. This has resulted in over-exploitation and the death of most of the trees in the Kilum forest. Over a period of ~11 years (1982-92) only one company had exploited 16 680 tonnes of the bark of the plant.
