Make wise use of forests “When planting trees is a curse” (March 1-15, 2014) was an insightful editorial on the economics of forests. The focus of our policymakers has shifted from productivity to conservation. About 20 per cent of the country’s land area is covered by forests. We need to use this resource to enhance productivity.
