Deforestation In Malawi

Malawi Wood Cutters

Logger Joseph Singano cuts a hardwood tree in a burnt-out forest on Malosa Mountain in Malawi. The forest floor was burned by the men a few months ago while making charcoal. He is an illegal logger, and has watched the forest recede kilometers in the last few years. The country of Malawi loses 2.8% of its forested land every year to illegal logging. This central African country used to be completely forested, and now has only about 20% of its total area under a canopy of trees.
