Some of the measures which can be taken for the conservation of forests are as follows :
(i) The indiscriminate and unauthorised felling (cutting) of forest trees for timber trade and firewood should be curbed immediately.
(ii) In case of Government authorised felling of forest trees, for every acre of forest cut down, an equal area of land should be planted with saplings of trees to make up for the loss in the long run.
(iii) Overgrazing of forest vegetation by the cattle of local people should be prevented.
(iv) Measures should be taken to prevent and control forest fires.
(v) The local people of villages in and around the forest should be involved in the conservation of forest by giving employment in silviculture and harvesting operations of the forest.
