  • Message from the Hon’ble Minister, Ministry of Agriculture and Forests on the occasion of the Social Forestry Day, 2nd June 2018

    On this very auspicious occasion, let me take this opportunity to remind ourselves on how lucky we are to be born in Bhutan with full blessing and guidance of our Beloved Majesties who have ensured us the abundance of forest and natural resources. It is due to the farsighted visions of Our Majesties, that despite being a small country, Bhutan is hailed far and wide as a model for balanced conservation and utilization of the natural resources. Royal Government of Bhutan’s Constitutional mandate to maintain 60 percent forest cover for all times was promulgated by our beloved 4th Druk Gyalpo, Jigme Singye Wangchuck.

    To contribute towards this noble goal, the Department of Forests and Park Services, since 1940s to till date have carried out more than 45,000 acres of forest plantation for our future generations and to meet the increasing timber demand. The annual demand for construction timber alone is 10.89 million cubic feet, out of which about 4.40 million cubic feet are for rural house constructions only. In 2017 alone, almost 260,000 cubic feet of timber were supplied for Dzongs and Lhakhangs renovation/reconstruction across the country which is another major timber consumer besides other various timber requirements.
