The Wider Image: With fuel scarce, Yemen's forests are next casualty of war
Yemeni lumberjack Ali al-Emadi spends hours chopping down an acacia tree with an axe as his 12-year-old nephew helps out splitting logs. In a country blighted by war, Emadi had to turn to logging in his northern al-Mahweet region to eke out a living. An economic collapse has wiped out the farming and building work he used to travel around the country for. But with demand for firewood soaring due to fuel shortages, there are now concerns that the country's humanitarian crisis, with millions facing starvation, has compounded the risk of deforestation - threatening both the environment of Yemen and any hope of a long-term livelihood for men like Emadi.

Lumberjacks load bundles of firewood onto a truck in Khamis Banisaad district of al-Mahweet province, Yemen, June 24, 2021. More than six years of war between the recognised government backed by a Saudi-led coalition and the Houthi movement aligned with Iran has killed tens of thousands of people and left 80% of Yemen's population reliant on aid. The fuel shortages due to a coalition blockade on Houthi-held areas, including limiting access to the main port of Hodeidah, have led businesses and families to swap diesel and gas for firewood. The alliance says the blockade is needed to foil arms smuggling. REUTERS/Khaled Abdullah SEARCH "ABDULLAH DEFORESTATION" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

Sulaiman Jubran prays in Khamis Banisaad district of al-Mahweet province, Yemen, June 24, 2021. "Demand depends on the number of fuel ships that make it to Hodeidah port. These days it (demand) is very high," said Jubran, who scratches a living selling firewood to visiting traders. "We are scared the country will become a desert, it is already happening ... you no longer see the trees that once covered the mountains," he said.
