Chopping Firewood

Logging for subsistence use is one of the main drivers of deforestation in Ethiopia. Within the northern highlands, once forested in large parts, often only small remnant forests remain. Fast-growing tree species like Eucalyptus (seen in this picture) have been introduced to allow reforestation and meet the rising demands of a growing population.
