It is known to be used for wood products more that being a source of gum Arabic. Gum production is constrained by various factors including the limited awareness about gum production and marketing in addition to over – cutting and forest fires. Education level has also its impact on gum production. The illiterate, who are mainly nomads are not concerned with gum production. With increasing level of education, gum production tends to be protected; educated people are more settled than illiterate and are connected to jobs and trading, production and marketing activities that may include gum as a commodity.
