About the Book :
In the context of changing paradigm in forestry, preparing a forest-working plan at landscape level remains a daunting task for all practicing foresters. Attempts have been made at many quarters to define a basic overarching process, which, if adopted, will lead to the preparation of the forest-working plan. This book tries to explain the process along with the underlying concepts. It presents a unique case study on principles and processes involved in revising the working plan of Rajnandgaon, a district in Chhattisgarh. It presents the basic process of working plan revision and introduces the study area and finally, makes an appraisal of past management of forests. Also it deals with the strategy for Sustainable Forest Management (SFM), an array of silvicultural options, ways of mainstreaming Joint Forest Management (JFM) and possibility of on-farm trees cultivation in the study area. The book will be useful to policy makers, researchers, forestry students and working professionals.
