Abstract:

Agro-forestry is the most common land use practice in Garhwal Himalayan region. The people, agriculture and forests are inseparable in the villages which are at fringe or inside the forest area especially the hilly areas of Garhwal Himalaya. Garhwal Himalayan region of India is peculiar because the forest is a part of their life in the form of fodder, fuelwood, wild edibles and other livelihood necessities. The villagers not only utilize the forest products but also treat the forests as their precious treasure and protect them from many illegal and destructive activities. As in case of villages of Tehri Garhwal, the fodder and fuelwood is the main requirement from the forest. The agroforestry system and village policies are different in different villages with least to maximum involvement of forest department and personnel in various forestry activities. The ownership of the forests varies from the government owned forest to the forest owned by village panchayats. In either case, the overexploitation of nearby forests was mostly found absent from the villages of Tehri Garhwal, Uttarakhand.
