The Forests in Himachal Pradesh are known for their grandeur and majesty, like a green pearl in the Himalayan crown. These life-supporting systems are presently under great stress due to the impact of modern civilization, economic development and growth in human and cattle population.

According to National Forest Policy, 1988, at least two thirds i.e 66 of the geographical area should be under forests in hilly states like Himachal Pradesh. However, keeping in view, that about 20 percent of the area is inaccessible and beyond the tree limit, the State Government aims to bring 50 of the geographical area under forest cover.
