Forest regeneration is the process by which new tree seedlings become established after forest trees have been harvested or have died from fire, insects, or disease. Regeneration is key to sustainable forestry and can be accomplished through two basic approaches.
          Methods of Regeneration
          From the above definition, it is apparent that there are two main methods of regenerating forest crops but in practice, a combination of the two methods is also sometimes adopted.  Thus, the methods of regeneration of forest crops are
i)             Natural regeneration
ii)            Artificial regeneration and
iii)           Natural regeneration supplemented by artificial regeneration
Natural Regeneration
          Natural regeneration is defined as ‘the renewal of a forest crop by self-sown seed or by coppice or root suckers.  It also refers to the crop so obtained.  Thus, the natural regeneration may be obtained from the following two main sources:
i)             From seed and
ii)            From vegetative parts
When regeneration obtained from seed forms a crop, it is called a seedling crop which is defined as ‘a crop consisting of seedlings neither planted nor of coppice or root sucker origin but originating in situ from natural regeneration’.  When this seedling crop grows into a forest, it is called a high forest.  When regeneration obtained by coppice forms a crop, it is called coppice crop and when it develops into a forest, it is called coppice forest to differentiate it from the high forest.  Root suckers are, however, not used for large scale regeneration operation.
Natural Regeneration from Seed
Natural regeneration from seed depends upon
1)       Seed production       2)       Seed dispersal
3)       Germination and       4)       Establishment

What is Agroforestry

Agroforestry • Definition:-Agroforestry is the branch of forestry, in which Agriculture crops are grow with the forest trees and shrubs. Or • Agroforestry is a land use management system in which trees and shrubs are grow around and among Agricultural crops. It's called Agroforestry.
• Agroforestry could play an important role in miltigating climate change, because it sequesters more atmospheric carbon in plant parts and soil.
• Agroforestry was formally outlined in the early 20th century by American economic geographer J. Russell Smith in his book Tree crops: A permanent Agriculture (1929).


IUCN ( International Union for Conservation of Nature) • IUCN was established on 5 October 1948 in the French town of Fontainebleau. • Headquarter:- Gland, Switzerland • CEO:- Grethel Aguilar (Jun 2019) • Founder:- Julian Huxley • Founded:- 5 October 1948, Fontainebleau, France. • Members:- 1400

* The International Union for Conservation of Nature is an international organisation working in the field of Nature conservation and sustainable use of Natural resources. It is involved in data gathering and analysis, research, field projects, advocacy and education. Or * International Union for Conservation of Nature is a democratic Union that brings together the world's most influential organization and top expert's in a combined effort to conserve nature and accelerate the transition to sustainable development.

• IUCN is a membership union composed of both government and civil society organisations. It harnesses the experience, resources and reach of its more than 1400 member organizati…

Benefits of Agroforestry

Benefits of Agroforestry • Three benifits of Agroforestry.
(1) Environmental benefits. (2) Economic benefits. (3) Social benefits.
• Agroforestry system have been adopted in many parts of the world.
(1) Environmental Benefits:- Agroforestry miltigating climate change affects through natural resources conservation in the short andCand sequestration in the long run.
• They can control runoff and soil erosion, there by reducing losses of water, soil material, organic matter and nutrients.

(2) Economic Benefits:- Greater output of food, fuel wood, fooder and timber.
• Significant potential to provide employment to rural and urban population.

(3) Social Benefits:- Improvement in rural living standards.
• Making villagers self-dependent.
• Rural people are easily produces the high production of Agricultural crops and forest products.
