The Ministry of Lands has received a report from all provinces that establishes the extent of encroachment in forest reserves.
Lands Minister Jean Kapata has confirmed in an interview with ZNBC News in Lusaka.
Ms Kapata however says her office and the department of forests are YET to look at the findings in the report.
This follows a survey conducted in all forest reserves, after some members of Parliament and Zambians appealed for more time for those that encroached in the forests to leave.
The Ministry had given a notice of eviction in 2017 to people that had encroached in forests.
Ms Kapata has however said that Government intends to fence off the forest reserves that are not encroached.
She has since warned that government will not allow any more encroachments in the forests.
