With the district falling under two vegetative covers, it is facing serious threat of devastation by human and animal population pressure such as housing expansion, farming, overgrazing, bushfires and timber exploitation. It is evident that given the current situation, the rate of devastation of the scarce environmental resources will hasten if calculated attempts are not made to arrest the situation.
Forest Reserve and Plantations
Currently, there is no forest reserve in the district. Wood plantations are established by individuals, groups and communities. However, there are isolated sacred and reserved places around water bodies and shrines which help to protect the environment.
