Though blessed with diverse forest resources that support a rich diversity of flora and fauna, the geographical distribution and quality of forests is not uniform in India. India has 78.29 million hectare (Mha) under forest and tree cover (Forest Survey of India, 2011) which is 23.81 per cent of the total geographical area of the country. Of this total, forest cover constitutes 69.20 Mha (21.05 per cent), whereas tree cover is 9.84 Mha (2.76 per cent).
