                The history of exploitation and destruction of forests in India goes   back to the British period when the forests wealth were consumed for commercial gains. The trend continued even after independence and the forests were used not for imperative economic growth but for other various reasons. The denudation of forest land, however, had now slowed down in recent years despite human and commercial pressures due to efforts made by various agencies. The main hot spots which are thretened in India are Himalayan regions and Western Ghats which are assumed as paradises for valuable gains. The growing population, one of the main factors for deforestation, increases the need of land for more food production to feed the growing number of people causing environmental degradation.
                   In view of the above and other facts, the Govt.of India and other agencies have launched various promotional schemes all over the country for afforestation and fresh plantations to increase the forest cover in which the participation of local people is also taking place. However, due to lack of a centralised database, these agencies are sometimes not in a position to plan their projects in an efficient way. The National Informatics Centre (NIC), Sultanpur had taken initiative to resolve this problem first time, though partially, by undertaking a project to create a sectoral database of social forestry in district Sultanpur and prepared a report  'Social Forestry in Distt. Sultanpur'. The report deals with the consolidation of the plantation work of various kinds of trees done by different agencies in different years graphically. Following are some important sample results.
