Explain why did colonial government start commercial forestry in india

Asked by garg.abhinav.2581 24th February 2015, 6:13 PM
Answered by Expert

Commercial forestry refers to the systematic planting and exploitation of forests for wood, pulp and paper. It was started by the colonial government to restrict the grazing and felling of trees so that forests could be preserved for the production of timber.
