200-year old Makamong tree felled by illegal loggers

It was not known when the tree was chopped off, but forest officials were despatched to the scene after they were alerted by villagers.

When the officials arrived at the scene, they found parts of the tree which were already sawn off in two big chunks still left in the forest with the others already removed, probably to saw mills in the province.

The officials later used elephants to haul the remaining log and timber out of the forest to their office for safe keeping.
