The Arabari forest of Bengal were badly degraded. Then in 1972, the west Bengal Forest Department planned to revive the degraded forest by involving the local people. The villagers of the surrounding area were involved in the protection of 1272 hectares of this forest. With the active participation of local people living around the forest, the degraded sal forest of Arabari became thick and green within ten years. In return, the villagers were given employment in both silviculture and harvesting operations of the forest and allowed to collect firewood and fodder from the forest area on a nominal payment. Thus, the Arabari forest provides a good example of conserved forest.
