Perspective on Social Forestry

B.L. Sharma (Author) R.L. Vishnoi (Author)

In agricultural systems, forestry is considered a vital link between human efforts and the ecology of the area. It provides fuel, fodder and fruits as well as protects from the climatic vagaries, Grazing and fodder are virtually free from the forests all over the country. But in a few cases, as has been a common practice in the rural side, housewife has to spend a day or two, to gather fuel wood for a week or so. This has an undesirable impact on the home life and particularly the care of the children. In addition to the continuous destruction of forests in the neighbourhood makes the situation more worst. This phenomenon makes the birth of “Social Forestry” or forestry for people. Fuel, fodder and Fruit (F) are the basic needs of the people, dwelling in rural side. It is the economy of the people on which they sustain life and go ahead. In the beginning, population was less and resources were abaundant. Hence, there was no danger of environmental disorder or degradation. But, with the gradual span of time, the population increased with an alarming rate and disturbed the man land ration, resulted in widespread destruction of forests and degradation of ecosystem. The present attempt on social forestry and people deals with the people’s participation in forestry system. Further, it takes the increasing distress of environmental degradation of land and people and wide destruction of forests in the recent past. Attention is drawn on changing ecosystem, declining production and increasing wastelands etc. The work provides some solution to the problems in the rural areas.
