Farmers in Northern Kordofan State rely on the Acacia senegal tree, which yields gum Arabic, for a significant portion of their income. As a result, the study attempted to identify and characterise a globally important pest insect group: longhorned beetles, as well as other elements that affect tree health. This research was conducted in three study sites, and was held during the 2007-2008 season. The data was analyzed using logistic regression. Tree age was verified as a predictor variable by 91.1%; this study findings recommended for tree management and sustainability.
