Sacred Forest

Sacred Forest
Most forests in our area have been cut down to make room for agriculture but small pockets have been preserved because of their religious importance. One such ‘sacred forest’ is just a fifteen minute walk from our house though we didn’t know this until recently when a local friend brought us and told us the history of the area. This is the largest tree in this patch of forest and, according to people in our town, the largest and oldest tree in southeastern Benin.
