This paper examined the relationship between lumbering activities as correlates of forest resource conservation in Akamkpa Local Government Area of Cross River State, Nigeria. One hypothesis was formulated to guide the study. Purposive and stratified random sampling techniques were adopted in selecting the 487 respondents sampled for the study. A validated 30 items using a modified four point Likert scale was the instrument used to respond to the instrument. The reliability estimate of the instrument ranged from 0.73- 0.92 using Cronbach Alpha method. To test the hypotheses formulated for the study, Simple linear regression statistical tool was used. The hypothesis was tested at 0.05 level of significance. The finding revealed that there is a significant influence of perception of lumbering activities on forest resources conservation. It was recommended among others that government should impose stiff penalties on wood companies and individuals who harvest these resources beyond agreed limits. A more feasible way to achieving this measure is by utilizing trained personnel that will help reinforce these rules and subsequent arrest of parties who may display unsustainable behaviour.
