               There were forests of Bhabhar and Shivalik hill zone forests or South Garhwal under Forest Division at initial stage.
   In 1864-65, government surveyed the forests of upper Garhwal and Kumaon regions. Government appointed Webber as forest surveyor for upper Garhwal forests. Webber reached to Mansarovar for forest survey.
 Webber published a book ‘Forests of Upper India and their Inhabitants’. Webber drew main Forest Maps on 1 12 inch paper and the measuring unit was 1 inch =1 mile. Webber provided details of forest area in acres, trees and their numbers and tree classes of each block.
  Cedrus/Devdaru  were less in upper Garhwal but pines, silver fur, spurs, cactus Surai, oaks , Ranga, Ransal trees etc were in abundance.  
  Initially less attention was there on those forests. Pines trees were there but being far away from rivers, they were not feasible right from business point of view. The forests around nad Prayag, near Tungnath valley, Madmaheshwar river, Vishnu Ganga valley, Dhauli River valley, Pilakhunta region were profitable for future. Devdaru forests were there up to Malari in Dhauli River valley but were far and transportation was difficult.
