Participatory Rural praisal, Focus Group Discussion and Interview were used in the data collection. It was found that large percentages of the dominant woody species in the area are declining or completely disappeared. Only two exotic species and very few indigenous species were reported to be increasing. It is suggested that conservation effort should not be restricted only to the threaten species, the entire study area should be considered for immediate intervention.
