Poomaranthawa forest area has a thick forest cover. It is home to different plant and animal species. Among the plant species, there are Kohomba, Palu, Kalumadiriya, and Burutha trees which have higher economical value. Because of its economical value, there is a threat to this forest. People try to encroach these lands by clearing the forest cover. At the same time, politicians try to relocate people in this area. All these activities pause a threat to this fine forest.
Around 300 acres of the forest cover was cleared to resettle around 350 families. It is sad to see this sort of resettlement projects without any environmental impact assessment. When the country is in a serious need of increasing forest cover, destroying the existing forest area seems to be very absurd.
