Tano-Ehuro Forest Reserve

Year of compilation: 2001

Site description
The reserve shares a common boundary with Tano-Anwia Forest Reserve (GH020). The area is drained by the Tano and Ehuro rivers, from which the reserve derives its name. Much of the terrain is rugged, with many steep-sided hills. The reserve was subjected to salvage felling in 1988, with the last logging recorded in 1991.

Pressure/threats to key biodiversity
The site was designated a Forest Reserve in 1967. It is classified as a Condition 5 forest and is reported to have been mostly destroyed by illegal farming, such that only pockets of forest remain between a matrix of farms. Protection of the remnants have, however, been advocated since, taken together with the contiguous Tano-Anwia and Yoyo Forest Reserves (GH020, GH024), the whole constitutes a fairly large block of forest.
