Mr. Emmanuel Owusu Nkwantabisa revealed that the Forestry Services Division in the Eastern region through their regular surveillance have been arrested some illegal chainsaw operators sawing economic trees and are put before court.

The deputy Eastern regional manager for the Forestry Services Division, Mr. Emmanuel Owusu Nkwantabisa has called for an immediate halt to the destruction of Ghana’s forest cover and the pollution of water bodies.

He said, collective efforts and shared responsibility from the general public is the way to go to sustain our forest for the future generations.

The deputy regional manager used the opportunity to called on security agencies, chiefs and elders, opinion and political leaders to support the Commission in its endeavour to maintain the forests and prosecute offenders.
