Deforestation in Haiti - View of Haiti's deforested mountains near Los Cacaos, Plateau Central Haiti

Deforestation in Haiti - View of Haiti's deforested mountains near Los Cacaos, Plateau Central Haiti

Look at this photo... Deforestation in Haiti is much worse than you think... I was so shocked when stood in font if this mountain range near Los Cacaos, Plateau Central Haiti, along the Haiti-Dominican Border while cruising along the international road that separate the two countries.

If you think deforestation in Haiti is a severe environmental problem, Look at this photo... This is how bad it really is... You can literally count the number of trees left...

It looks like you can walk for miles and not be able to find a good shade. there are no trees, no houses... No life!

Some of Us Haitians talk about deforestation in Haiti but we never actually see it.

Each and every Haitian needs to take a good look at this photo and admit it... If we continue to cut trees in Haiti this is what the hole country will look like.

Charcoal is Haiti's chief source of fuel and the #1 cause for deforestation and environmental disasters.

As long as Haitians continue to use charcoal for cooking deforestation will continue.

Deforestation in Haiti - View from the Air

Looking at Haiti from the air, it looks severely deforested... Haiti IS severely deforested... Only 3 percent of Haiti is covered with trees... Wow!

Deforestation in Haiti is a severe environmental problem. In 1923, over 60% of Haiti's land was forested; by 2006, less than 2% of Haiti was forested.
