This project work identified and examined the socio-economic benefits derived by the community members from the Ondo State Afforestation project. Data were collected from one hundred and twenty respondents randomly selected from three communities namely Leege, Makinde and Imoru. Simple descriptive statistics such as frequency tables and percentages were used for data analysis.

The result shows that the project did well in terms of rural infrastructural support, employment generation but had shortcomings in providing needed agricultural assistance to farmers in the communities. It was therefore suggested that the project should strengthen its agricultural focus with emphasis on extension linkage.
