National Forest Policy of India envisages a minimum of 33% of the total
geographical area under forest / tree cover to maintain environmental stability and
ecological balance; that are vital for sustenance of all life-forms, human, animal and

programme of the Telangana Government
envisages to increase the present 24% tree cover
in the State to 33% of the total geographical
area of the State. The thrust areas to achieve the
above are two-fold; one, initiatives in notified
forest areas, and the other, initiatives in areas
outside the notified forest areas.

The first objective is sought to be achieved by a multi-pronged approach of
rejuvenating degraded forests, ensuring more effective protection of forests against
smuggling, encroachment, fire, grazing and intensive soil and moisture conservation
measures following the watershed approach.
Major fillip is sought to be given to
Social Forestry for achieving the
second objective. In the areas outside
the notified forest, massive planting
activities will be taken up in areas such
as; road-side avenues, river and canal
bank, barren hill, tank bunds and
foreshore areas, institutional premises,

religious places, housing colonies, community lands, municipalities, industrial parks,

be planted in the State during the
next three years. Out of this, 130
crores seedlings are proposed to be
planted outside the notified forest
areas (10 crore within HMDA
limits, and the remaining 120
Crores in rest of the State). It is also
proposed to plant, and rejuvenate
the viable rootstock to achieve 100 crore plants inside the forest areas by way of
intensive protection of the forests.

entire State will be taken up in 2nd week
of July. People from all walks of life,
