Abstract:

Wood is an important asset since time immemorial, nowadays there is scarcity of wood due to enormous population pressure and stringent law and regulations against felling of tree in India. Tree conservation is associated with multi-dimensional benefits but after attaining a physiological age (age of maturity) by the tree it starts natural decaying if the wood is not utilized properly in time. It is exiting fact that the natural decomposition of wood improves the fertility status and physical properties of soil but at the same time the increasing demand of wood need to be fulfilled. The demands of sustainable development rely on judicious use of resource like wood for mankind. This paper elucidates the significance of tree harvesting at maturity for better management of the forest resources over the natural death of tree provided the wood is used in such a way that carbon can be blocked in it for longer duration.
