Department of Forestry
The state of Uttarakhand, which has about 65% of its land covered in forests, provides numerous chances for individuals pursuing graduation and postgraduate degrees in forestry. Since the University's establishment, forestry has been taught as a discipline, with consideration for the socio-economic and cultural significance of forests in the Himalaya. In this area, people and forests have coexisted peacefully for many years. With the exception of the first period of its establishment, the department has expanded its scope into numerous forestry-related fields, particularly in relation to hills.The Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) -Hons. in Forestry programme will now be offered as an undergraduate and graduate degree by the department of forestry. In the upcoming years, the Department will need to play a crucial role in the development of forestry education in this isolated area with a natural laboratory to aid in the growth of the state's economy and the management of the nation's forests.
