Forest Area

Forest Area

Kerala Forest Department (KFD), like other state departments in India, has evolved over last one and half century in response to changes in Forest Policy, priorities in five year plans and demands on the forests. However, it has by and large inherited the basic institutional framework of the colonial forest administration, with the emphasis on protection and management of government forests with limited involvement of the public.
