Mother and son of Lach - ethnic minority people living in LangBian Plateau, Lam Dong Province, Vietnam - are carrying firewood through dry fields. Before that, they had to cut the pine trees in the woods for getting the oily wood. They sell them for their livelihood, and people use them to ignite for cooking. This is a longstanding habit of indigenous minorities though not serious but also acts of deforestation.
