Culling of cailcedrats in Thies: A heritage in danger

Promise of repopulation Commander Ndiogou continues: “Whenever a felling or pruning authorization is given, the objective is to protect the human being who constitutes the alpha and omega of sustainable resource management. We do not give all-round authorizations, but we do it for a single purpose: to protect the human being,” he said, referring to the case of a tree that had collapsed during the 2019 wintering, killing a young lady. “To avoid such tragedies, the service takes all appropriate measures. It is better to cut down the khayas before they fall on individuals”, he says, not without adding that “since this incident, the populations have been submitting requests for pruning or felling, as a precautionary measure”. In addition to this precision, the boss of the Waters and forests of Thies announces a reforestation program of 40 thousand cailcedrons which will soon be launched in Thies to reconstitute the aging population of these emblematic trees of the City of Rail. “The population of cailcedrats is aging. It must necessarily be reconstituted,” he said, recalling that their plantation had started in 1900 in the Ballabey district of Thies and had continued until 1945, under the leadership of the Colonial Administration. These century-old trees are increasingly threatening to fall. The last inventory in 2003 reported 3,188 feet of cailcedrat. Another inventory is planned soon to determine the rate of disappearance of these shady trees, which line many avenues in the city. “A vast program has been set up to reforest the entire city of Thies. This program is focused on the production of 40 thousand trees. And the implementation will be carried out in synergy with the local authorities and the various partners, in particular the movement “Thiès en marche’ and the entire population, in an inclusive and participatory approach.”Moreover, a concept accompanies this program. It is about “A concession, a tree” which consists of planting trees in each concession, each neighborhood, in order to restore this ecosystem which is the “khaya senegalensis” of its scientific name. Already, he indicates, “after each felling of a tree, a compensatory reforestation is carried out, with a view to perpetuating the species”. He gives the example of the school of the city Ibrahima Sarr ex-Ballabey and the avenue El Hadji Malick Sy. Namely that these cailcedrats were planted in Thies from 1933, taking into account climatic and soil constraints. A tree of great utility, with the very shady character it gives to the arteries, the caïlcédrat has often been chosen as the patron tree of national reforestation campaigns such as in 1995, 1996, 2014 and 2015. The census of the cailcedrats of the municipality of Thies, carried out in 2003 by the Forest Service of Thies, reported 3,188 living trees. nfniang@lequotidien. sn
