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.
