DESTRUCTION OF BAMBOO CLUMPS IN NATURAL BAMBOO FORESTS IN 17,216 Hectares in 5 coupes of Series I.


DESTRUCTION OF BAMBOO CLUMPS IN NATURAL BAMBOO FORESTS BY Departmental Extraction of Timber: Lack of supervision, knowledge and commitment of concerned field staff of Forest Department are reasons of the destruction. Migrant labourers from Odissa works in the coupes and Local communities are also involved in harvesting of Bamboo but they are not paid as per F.S.R. (Forest Scheduled Rates) hence they collect Bamboo from easily accessible areas and culms. Since, Department getting (%) granted for loss of Bamboo clumps.  These photographs are taken in North Bamboo Coupe I Chinturu and West Bamboo Coupe I Lakkavaram on 19th March, 2014. This is not pertaining to a small area but in total 17,216 Hectares of forest earmarked in 5 Coupes of Series I during this year. One can observe the dying clumps and total destruction. Appealed to concerned Higher Officer for necessary action. Hope to get positive response. There are specimen examples that every clump worked in last season (3 years back) is died.
