Abstract

An enumeration of roadside trees along major routes of three selected urban towns in southern parts of
Ekiti State was examined. A total of 23 tree species belonging to 16 families were enumerated. Tree
density enumerated was 147 while houses in the tree vicinities were 442 thus given a ratio of 1 tree to 3
houses. Most of the trees were products of wildling preservation rather than planted. The products
derivable from the trees constituted a major prerequisite to their being preserved and/or planted. The
incentives and disincentives to tree domestication in the study area were identified. Strategies that
would improve the present situation were proposed.
