Abstract:
Trees are the essential component of the indigenous agricultural systems and they are preserved or managed to meet the immediate needs of the population. The present study was undertaken to document the timber yielding species and pattern of utilization in Bharangi village. The total of 35 timber yielding species belonging to 17 families was documented. Maximum number of farmers preferred to grow Tectona grandis (80.0%) and Mangifera indica (63.33%) on their farms lands. Among the total 35 timber yielding species, maximum number of species (25) was utilized for agricultural implements and fuel wood. followed by house construction (23), furniture (10) and least for ply wood and decorative articles (4). Hence, it’s essential to raise the quality seedlings of most preferable species by the forest department nurseries and private nurseries for providing seedlings to farmers for planting purpose and in turn to reduce the pressure on forests and to conserve biodiversity.
