Mozambique always had a big area of forest. Today this area is decreasing quickly due to the high level of deforestation. The causes of this deforestation are: the fires used to create agriculture areas, also the ones used for illegal hunting and the cut of trees for the wood industry. The number of Chinese wood buyers multiplied last year but they are not directly responsible for the big deforestation occuring, in fact the real cause are the lack of clear laws and the high level of corruption between the officers that should control the forests.
