Limbé River Victim of Deforestation

Limbé River Victim of Deforestation

Limbé, a town known for a healthy agricultural industry, is part of a dangerous trend, caused by vanishing tree cover. Large areas of barren ground suffer soil erosion when the rains come; and Limbé River's flow has slowed as a result.

Limbé still contains more tree cover than most of Haiti, but how long before more deforestation occurs?
