Food products, fodder, wood for crafts, but above all construction and firewood, traditional medicine products, etc. The natural environment! provides in addition to other needs other functions: in fact, vegetation provides shelter for humans and animals, protects the soil against erosion and maintains its fertility, etc.This vegetation also forms the privileged support of the spiritual life of a good number of local populations through the fetish trees and the sacred woods. Similarly, this vegetation provides an important socio-cultural function real since it nourishes the spiritual life of a good number of natives.
