Besides, it is a widely recognized fact that fire wood as fuel is the most pollution producing material. Shifting cultivation now covers about 10,000 square kilometres (3,900 square miles). Valuable landfill space is prolonged; for every ton of recycled paper, three cubic yards of landfill are saved ( EPA, 1998 ). Lower elevations are commonly covered by forests, while very high elevations are usually treeless. Today, about 150,000 sq km (58,000 sq miles) of forest remains.
