At present the forests are not being looked as a source of revenue and sustained supply of raw material. Rather, the emphasis now is on protection and conservation of forests, environment and wild life. The removals from forests are, therefore, limited to removal of dead, diseased, decaying trees and salvage lots and removals for meeting the bonafide requirements of the local people.
