Forest conservation is the general practice of working to protect and maintain the planet’s natural forested areas and other equally important habitats. The goals of conservation are to ensure a healthy forest ecosystem by minimizing human intervention and allowing the forest to thrive. It involves a level of upkeep that is not only beneficial to the forest and surrounding wildlife, but for future generations of any Earth-dwelling life. Forest conservation is also a constant effort to reverse the damage done to these systems by deforestation and general environmental pollution.
Some of the main courses of conservatory action taken by authorities in the forestry field are planned cuts, reforestation or planting, fire control, general protection and regulation, and close management by rangers and other officials.
