Forestry measures


  • In forest lands, slopes are steep, uneven, soil is less stable, highly erodable and precipitation is high.
  • The vegetation and dried leaves on the floor intercept the rain and reduce the impact of rain drops.
  • Due to overgrazing and felling of trees, most of the hills and hillocks became naked and barren.
  • Re-establishment is essential to avoid erosion and to maintain ecological balance.
  • Afforestation by adopting contour trenching helps in reducing the soil erosion and increases the infiltration rate.
