Abstract:
The forest provides the timber and non-timber forest produce. These forest produce are important in relation to generate revenue and source of livelihood to tribal, source of revenue to government, generation of employment etc. Considering importance of forest produce in socio-economic development of the Gujarat state the present investigation has been undertaken to study growth and variability in production of forest produce in the Gujarat state. For this investigation secondary data related to production of timber and Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) collected for the period 1992-93 to 2018-19 from the available reports of ‘Gujarat Forest Statistics’ and to study decadal growth divided in to three different periods. The compound annual growth rate and Cuddy and Della Velle Instability Index used to achieve the objectives. The results of study showed high instability in the production of timber, fuel wood and NTFPs in all the circles and Gujarat state as whole during the period-I, II, III and overall period. Production of fuel wood significantly raised during period-II and overall period where as production of timru leaves recorded positive growth during period-I in Gujarat state. Production of total NTFP, wax and gums found significantly declined during the period from 1994-95 to 2018-19. Production of gums, mhuda flowers, mhuda fruits and honey showed increasing trend with high variation during study period.
