ABSTRACT
The aim of the study is to examine the impacts of indigenous techniques on vegetation resources management of the Maradi-Katsina border Region. The study was a survey research in which systematic sampling technique was used to select respondents from the user groups of Danmatyawa and Kabobi villages of Maradi - Katsina region respectively. The user groups which are purposively identifiedamounts to four (4) both Dan Matyawa and Kabobi villages. These are farmers, herbalists, pastoralists and wood carvers as well as farmers, herbalists, blacksmiths, wood carvers respectively. A sample of 59 respondents was drawn using systematic technique from the total population of 183 people in the two study villages. Groupinterview was administered on respondents drawn from above using checklist. The study found out that there are four (4) techniques of trees management of the area which are preferentially practiced by the people of the area. It also found out that there is strong nexus between indigenous techniques and trees diversity enrichment inthe region because of what is seen in terms of high trees stands in the area. It is therefore recommended the study on the values of indigenous knowledge/practices should be a hallmark of researches so as to update the knowledge base with various hidden skills.
