It provides fuel, fodder and fruits as well as protects from the climatic vagaries, Grazing and fodder are virtually free from the forests all over the country. But in a few cases, as has been a common practice in the rural side, housewife has to spend a day or two, to gather fuel wood for a week or so. This has an undesirable impact on the home life and particularly the care of the children. In addition to the continuous destruction of forests in the neighbourhood makes the situation more worst.
