    The forest department was managing Ganga Division and Garhwal Forest Division for exploiting the forest wealth. District magistrate was in charge of other forests. Government was not interested exploiting those forests. Therefore, officials ignored conservation of those forests. There was unwanted cutting of those forests trees and due to flooding, landslides, there was loss for agriculture land nearby those forests.
           Villagers were demanding cutting trees more than their requirement and acquired land for agriculture inside the forests. Villagers never used proper cutting appliances and applications thus, there were forest destructions.
               By a notification of 1886, district magistrate tried for controlling unnecessary forest destruction.  Kumaon commissioner appointed a ranger an four forest guards. In 1887, commissioner appointed additional ranger and three more forest guards for forest supervision.  There was a forest superintendent at the monthly salary for Rs. 75 for 1888-1891. In 1893, Government appointed a ranger on deputation from forest department replacing superintendent.  In 896, for better forest management, government appointed three more foresters at monthly salary for Rs.15and eleven forest guards at monthly salary for rupees 6. Government also appointed four forest bungalow guards, one English clerk, a muhrrir and a peon. Since, the work force was lesser than requirement the district magistrate looked after selected forests only.
