Protection in this term referred to prevention encroachment, fire, cattle and hunting of seed dispersers.

Should cattle be romoved?
Ultimately, the decision to reduce the number of cattle or to remove them altogether depends on careful consideration of their economic value to the community, balanced against their effects on the regenerating trees.

How can fire be prevented?
Fire is the most serious hindrance to forest regeneration in the seasonally dry topics. Where the fire risk is considered to be significant, fire prevention is a vital activity for ANR. Firebreaks around ANR sites must be cut at the beginning of the hot, dry season and a fire warning and suppression system must be maintained until the rainy season begins.
