Master of Science in Forestry

Forestry is the art and science of tree resources, including plantations and natural stands. M.Sc. Forestry is a two years regular postgraduate degree program and is divided into 4 semesters. The M.Sc. Forestry degree at BFIT is affiliated to HNB Garhwal Central University.

“Forestry is the science or practice of planting, managing, conserving and maintaining forests and its associated resources with the aim to meets the goal of human benefit .”
M.Sc. Forestry or forest management is considered as both independent scientific branch and practical field, containing many aspects of forestry, which formulates synthetic conclusions indicating the main directions of management. It is engaged in formation of relation between nature and the man on the basis of knowledge of forest state, demand society for forest functions as well as scientific achievements and experience in solving the problems of running and organic structure of forest.
Issues like global warming, deforestation, global climatic change, water scarcity, natural disasters, etc. are all related to the effective and controlled use of forest wealth. With 175 million hectares constituting wasteland and another 110 million hectare forming severely degraded land in India, the need of the hour is to rejuvenate it through forestry-related programs. The profession of forestry has experienced rapid and perceptible changes in the last years. What used to be considered as a business and a responsibility of the local villagers has turned into a field of global concern where the preservation and conservation of biodiversity play a main role.
“The study of nature has no beginning and it has no end,” Jim Corbett had said in Jungle Lore. And the forests of our country provide an opportunity to spend a lifetime in admiring nature and make a living at the same time. In the remote areas of India, where a sizable proportion of the population depends on forests, directly or indirectly for the raw materials, employment and other daily needs, forestry is the main source of employment. In these areas appropriate steps are undertaken towards energy conservation, proper utilization of wastelands and goods and services are also produced.
