Ghana's forest cover which was about 8.2 million hectares by 1900 is currently estimated to be 1.6 million. The main factors that have contributed to the shortfall are human disturbance and forest fires. Currently, forest fires have become the single most important threat to the survival of remaining forests in forest-savanna transitional zone due to recent surge in fuel levels and drier climate.
