Chapter 2 covers different aspects of nursery right from selecting of site for nursery to study of germination parameters, conditioning of seedling and management of fertilizers application and insect-pest and diseases. Third chapter is devoted for raising and managing of plants. This includes matching site and species, lay out, soil working and finally after care of the plantation. Once the plant gets established the diversity of both plants and insect increases. Knowing the status of regeneration of principal species and other species is also important. Hence regeneration survey and vegetational survey have been covered in chapter 4. Quality of wood is of prime importance, which is obtained by thinning the crops.
