Data from: Effects of Tree Harvest on the Stable-State Dynamics of Savanna and Forest
Responses from 100 household interviews, 20 each from three villages in Mali and 10 each from two villages that were very nearby. Included are responses to questions about the percent of fuelwood purchased versus collected by the household, and, of the percentage collected, the proportion that is cut from live trees versus obtained dead on the ground
