B.Sc. in Forestry - Forest Research Institute

B.Sc. in Forestry is a 4 years full-time undergraduate course divided into 8 semesters. B.Sc. Forestry degree at BFIT is affiliated to HNB Garhwal Central University. The primary aim of the program is to train students in Forestry. The duties of forestry professionals include:

  • conserving forest and forest resources.
  • managing forest resources.
  • conserving and protecting wildlife.
  • developing forest and forest resources.
  • maintaining awareness of latest technology used in the field of Forestry.

It is rooted in the basic sciences of biology, chemistry and mathematics and is performed with the applied sciences of ecology, silviculture, and management. While science guides the decisions of a forester, it does not make them for him or her. Foresters must apply their knowledge in a decision-making arena where good solutions are not always obvious, conflicting human interests must be considered, and conflicting opinions must be compromised. This need for experienced judgment, diplomacy and tact constitutes the art of forestry.

Sound forestry decisions consider the current and future health of the forest and strive to ensure that benefits will be available for future generations. Although trees are the predominant plant component of forests, foresters manage all of the resources found in forests.
