... Situation analysis Kenya’s forests are rapidly declining due to pressure from increased population and other land uses. With B of the country being arid and semi-arid, there is a lot of strain on the rest of the land since the economy is natural resource based. The productive area which forms about 20% of the country’s area falls in the medium and high potential agro-ecological zones and is under agriculture, forest and nature reserves. According to FAO Forest Resource Assessment 1990, Kenya is classified among the countries with low forest cover of less than 2% of the total land area. The dwindling forest cover has a severe effect on the climate, wildlife, streams, human population especially forest dwellers. Introduction. Deforestation is clearing Earth's forests on a massive scale, often resulting in damage to the quality of the land. Forests still cover about 30 percent of the world’s land area, but swaths the size of Panama are lost each and every year. The world’s rain forests could completely vanish in a hundred years at the current rate of deforestation. Reasons for cutting down the trees Forests are cut down for many reasons, but most of them are related to money or to people’s need to provide for their families.The biggest driver of deforestation is agriculture. Farmers cut forests to provide more room for planting crops or grazing livestock. Often many small farmers will each clear a few acres to feed their families by cutting down trees and burning them in a......

Mangrove Forests

...Mangroves are ever green forests between land and sea, found essentially in the intertidal zone and occupying large tracts along the shallow coasts, estuaries and in the deltas where they are influenced by tides, widely differing conditions of saline and rainfall regimes. The coastline of Pakistan is 1,050 km long and 40-50 km wide shared by the provinces of Sindh (350 km) and Balochistan (700 km). In the Sindh province, mangroves are found in the Indus Delta which occupies approximately 600,000 ha extending from Korangi Creek in the north to Sir Creek in the South. Indus Delta comprises 17 major creeks, numerous minor creeks and extensive mudflats and constitutes 97% of total mangrove forests found in Pakistan. Mangroves of Indus delta are unique in being the largest arid climate mangroves in the world. The survival of these forests is largely associated with perennial freshwater supplies from the River Indus, which flows through the delta before reaching the Arabian Sea. An area of 344,845 ha of the Indus delta has been declared as protected forests and is under the control of Sindh Forest Department. The Indus Delta is believed to have had as many as eight mangrove species in the past. However at present, only four species have been left. Nearly 95% of the mangroves located in the Indus Delta comprise the species Avicennia marina. Very small patches of Ceriops tagal and Aegiceras corniculatum are found near the mouth of the Indus at Keti Bunder. Rizophora mucronata......

Eastern Texas Brief History of Rangeland or Forest The Angelina National forest was formed in October 13, 956 it is one of four national forests in Eastern Texas which lies on 153, 179 acre (619 cm). It is divided into three counties Nacogdoches, San Augustine, and Jasper Counties; it lies on the Neches River Basin on the North, and South Shores of Sam Rayburn Reservoir. The Angelina National Forest is home to many wildlife species such as deer’s, squirrel, wild turkeys and ducks. The first person to visit the Angelina Rangeland Forest was 81,000 years ago he was a white Settler by the name of John H. Graham. In 1934, the Texas State Legislative approved the government on the purchase, to create the Angelina National Forest. What are the current management problems? The current management problems that the Angelina National Forest seems to be suffering from are the ATV’s because it is constantly damaging the environment. As well as the trash and the refuse that is being left behind of the visitors. What are the current federal land management strategies that address these problems? Current land management issues could be managed properly if signs were posted throughout the park or if they had a private area for the use of ATV’s. It could also be managed well if there was stricter enforcement or restrictions put in place on the use of motorized vehicles, by permitting or......

Forest Hill

...ISSN 1940-204X ISSN 1940-204X Forest Hill Paper Company Thomas L. Albright University of Alabama Introduction Forest Hill Paper Company (FHPC) is a small, closely-held paperboard manufacturer that produces a broad line of paperboard in large reels, termed parent rolls. These parent rolls are sold to converters who further process them into containers used for a diverse line of consumer products, such as packaging for microwavable meals. The owners of FHPC have long pursued the strategy of producing a full range of products. As a small company competing against large companies in a commodity market, management believes Forest Hill must offer a full range of both products and services. Thus, Forest Hill’s strategy is to create a niche based on service and rapid response to customer needs. While product diversity within a paperboard plant would not be apparent to a casual observer, subtle differences exist. For example, paperboard differs by basis weight (thickness determined by caliper measurements) for a specified length of product. Additionally, paperboard may be uncoated or coated with an opaque, white clay-based material that masks cosmetic flaws and smooths surface variability. Customers are increasingly concerned with surface variability because an extremely smooth finish is required to accommodate complex printed designs on the completed paperboard container or carton. FHPC produces 20 different grades of paperboard. Some grades are produced in large......

Forest

...It was a spooky forest, dull, grey and filled with twisted trees, branches that reached out and the deeply cracked bark. The trees surrounding the edge of the forest with the branches clustered and tangled together which created an archway which dared people to enter its midst. These were far from a silent set of woods though. They had the smell of rotten corpses. There was always a thick fog that was visible in the forest. It felt like a monsters den, howling every night that was heard miles away. Paulina was a great person, she loved going on adventures and exploring places. She was young and was free. It was her ambition, so one day, she heard about the forest, due to her ambition she wanted to visit it. It was a cold and dark night, the frost hit her, the cold frost hitting against her with the wind. She walked through the fog towards the archway created by the trees, all that she could see was darkness. She entered... Carrying on for only about 15 minutes and then stopped. She shifted her view to her left and to the right to see if anything else apart from the darkness was visible. There was rarely any light coming from anywhere apart the gleaming moon on the puddles... But the puddles didn’t look like ordinary puddles. They gave out a dark red colour like blood. It made her insides turn, for assuming the worst. She panicked, all alone she had no one to turn to apart from herself of course. She stood out in the middle with her bright hair and skin. She slowly pulled out......

The Forest People

...receive in return. Turnbull discovered that this method is how they Pygmies trade with the villagers. When the Pygmies trade their meat with the villagers they are guaranteed to receive tobacco and palm in return. Turnbull also made observations regarding the Pygmies relationship to the forest. The Pygmies feel as if they are good to the forest then the forest will supply them with plentiful amounts of food. Another observation made by Turnbull was the fact that there are no leaders and no social classes. He wondered how the Pygmies remained so peaceful. From observing the Pygmies he realized that the ways they enforce the laws is truly incredible. They have sets rules that they all must follow and by not following the few simple rules can result in banishment. Turnbull though that crime rate and criminal activity would be great, but was he dead wrong. The Pygmies know that they cannot survive in the forest alone so they are not likely to disobey the laws. Though the Pygmies are not perfect, by any means, they live in relative harmony with their world, have close social relationships, and have no major social problems. They find security and they value people, family, the forest, community, and sharing - not material possessions....

Forest People

...Cultural Anthropology March 8, 2015 Turnbull’s The Forest People Turnbull’s The Forest People, is a book written about the Pygmy’s culture and how people living in this tribe survived. Colin Turnbull decided to evoke on a journey where he analyzes this interesting lives of the Pygmies. Throughout the story we find several key components that give us more of an understanding about each valuable thing that the Pygmies do everyday. This can be found from the way they eat with portions to the way they raise their children with tender and love. Even though each component is extremely different then what we do in today’s society, there are definitely some valuable lessons that can be learned through reading and understanding the Pygmies culture. The Pygmies have one rule to follow when thinking about gathering food, “No one goes to bed hungry”. This quote is interpreted exactly the way it is written. When the men and women typically go out to hunt, which is normally one time every week or two weeks, they always keep the amount they are feeding in mind. Unlike Americans, who normally go out and prepare food for just their family or household, the Pygmy’s make sure that every single individual in their tribe is fed. It is very rare to hear about women helping the men hunt but it is a refreshing thing to hear that they take part in this responsibility. The job of the women is not actually to kill the game but they simply put the net around it.......

Forest Gump

...Forest Gump Book vs Movie Although there seem to be more differences between the book and the movie of Forrest Gump, there are still many similarities between the two. Forrest was raised by only his mother; they lived in the same big white house renting rooms out to travelers. Forrest does earn a scholarship to play running back for the University of Alabama football team. He meets the love of his life, Jenny Curran in first grade and later on they get married after Jenny went through some violent relationships. Forrest meets his best friend Bubba and they have dreams of opening up a shrimping business when they get out of the army. Bubba later on dies in the army with Forrest by his side. In memory of Bubba, when Forrest gets out of the army he buys a big shrimping boat and starts the shrimping business him and Bubba dreamed of. Even though Forrest wasn’t able to save Bubba’s life, he did rescue his lieutenant. His name was Dan, lieutenant Dan. When they were both put in the hospital together after Forrest was shot in the “Buttocks” running away from the enemies, they became good friends. While at the hospital, when Forrest had free time he would go fool around and play Ping-Pong having no intentions to be good until he realized how good he had gotten. After a while Forrest’s name was getting around and becoming well known. After a while he becomes a world-class Ping-Pong player. Between the book and the movie of Forrest Gump, there were more differences than I......

...To: Group 2 From: Britany Kouba Date: 9/24/2015 Subject: Forest Hill Paper Company Forest Hill Paper Company is a small closely-held manufacturing company that produces paperboard in large reels. Their strategy is to produce a full range of products and to create a niche by focusing on customer service and rapid response to customer needs. The company is currently producing twenty different grades of paperboard. Forest Hill competes against large companies in a commodity market, which is why they strive for having a variety of products and services. One issue facing the company is that paperboard industry’s demand fluctuates every three or four years. Therefore, the company will have large orders for a couple years and then minimal orders for a couple years. During the high demand years, the demand for paperboard exceeds the company’s capacity. Additionally, market share for domestic paperboard is declining as trends are growing for plastic and more environmentally friendly grades of paperboard. Forest Hill also has a large variety of products with different costs. Some of their products use more materials and take a longer time to produce, making the cost higher. As a team, we should look at how the company is figuring out costs for each product and understand the costs that come with manufacturing the different products. We should also look at how slitting and grade changes affect cost. The team needs to look at what the cost drivers are. Within the next...
