The forest resource is very important resource for any society and it should be utilized to its best extent in order to provide the society better prospects of living. Moreover the productivity of the forest may be optimized through appropriate growth & yield studies. The yield of the forests can be increased by adopting the better management practices.

The analysis of the complex interaction between the level of growing stock, timber harvest and tree growth, is the central theme of forest management. Effective management of forest resources requires a pro-active attitude and an ability to cope with complexity. Pro-active in contrast to re-active management acknowledges the need for effective planning.
