Wood Fuel Energy Type Dependence in Jos Plateau State Nigeria


The type of wood fuel supplied to Jos was investigated. The data used for the study was gathered through the administration of questionnaires, personal interviews with wood fuel dealers and field surveys. Results showed that fuel wood (Firewood) and charcoal were the most common types of wood fuel supplied to Jos. The most commonly cut tree species is Anogeissus Leiocarpus or chewing stick commonly called “Marke”. Accessibility to the source regions of wood supply should be improved upon. Wood fuel sites and depots should be included in master plans. Preference of certain species was wide spread and the issue of preference requires urgent resolution to prevent a wide spread loss of biodiversity through over-exploitation of particular species.
