African Blackwood is a slow growing tree that regenerates from root suckers and stumps. Mature trees grow as simple individuals within the savannah. At the beginning of the year, the forestry authorities of the provinces where Blackwood occurs, receive instructions from Central Government about the quantity of Blackwood that can be cut in that year. Then, individuals or groups from the villages located in the growing area apply for cutting licenses within this quota. The forestry authority allocates the quota deciding how much can be cut by the different groups and individuals. This procedure guarantees that income generated by harvesting remains in the local area.
