  38. 38. KEY PROBLEMS
  39. 39. Some of the key problems in forest resources are the following:  Continuing Deforestation- with only about 5 million hectares of the forest cover, the Philippines is now one of the most severely deforested countries in the Asia Pacific region. Measures to combat deforestation, such as plantation development, have met with little success, mainly due to illegal forestry
  40. 40.  Illegal Logging- this is one of the major illegal forestry activities. With so many illegal logging activities going on, the forest cannot anymore replenish its trees. The government has been helpless in monitoring and enforcing laws on these activities.
  41. 41.  Kaingin agriculture – this involves burning a portion of the forest area to be used for agriculture. After the nutrients have been used for certain period of planting, the people doing this called kaingineros, move to other forest areas to repeat the illegal activity. Again, due to lack funds, government has beeb unable to monitor the activities.
