DMPQ- Outline the objectives of Social Forestry.

Increasing Forest Area and Restoring Ecological Balance

Moisture conservation: trees take water from the lower soil strata and bring it to the upper layers through long tap root system and, also, trees check evaporation of water;  Soil conservation: trees help in checking erosion by wind and water;

Natural habitat conservation:Trees provide habitat to many birds and animals, some of which are agro-friendly.

 

Meeting Basic Rural Needs

Social forestry satisfies the basic rural needs referred to as ‘five Fs’—food, fuel, fodder, fertiliser (green manure) and fibre. The large-scale depletion of easily accessible forests has resulted in acute scarcity of fuel-wood and fodder. What is disturbing is that the deficit in fuel wood is met by using cow-dung cakes, thus wasting a rich and cheap source of manure.

Ensuring Better Land Use

Social forestry helps achieve a balanced and viable land use by checking soil erosion, facilitating reclamation of marginal lands, checking waterlogging and by bringing about monolithic integration of forestry, agriculture and animal husbandry.

Generation of Employment

Social forestry operations have the potential of improving the employment situation in rural areas especially during the lean agricultural season. This helps in stabilising incomes of weaker sections of Society.

Controlling Pollution

Trees are known to absorb harmful gases and release oxygen. This way they help reduce air pollution especially in urban areas.
