This paper is out to discover the major causes of forest depletion, its environmental and economic implications, and unearth the plausible planning measures as the panacea. To this effect, discourse on the subject matter are major based on the information sourced from the relevant literature reviewed, the observations and the experiences of the author juxtaposing the observed findings with the extent of deforestation in the forest zone of Nigeria. On the final note, a good number of plausible environmental and planning policies are proposed to drastically address the issue coupled with an enabling law and legislation to back up expeditious action against deforestation as delay may be Keywords- Forest Depletion, Local climate, Climate change, Eco-forestation,
