  There were annual expenses on District forest Department for rupees from  25000 to 30000. The income for meeting  those expenses were as –
Minor produces as Shilajit, Animal skin and horns  –Rs. 4500
Grazing tax in Dudhatoli forest range- Rs 1750
Miscellaneous income – 5500
  Other income was by selling trees from upper range.
 There were sizable numbers of elephants in Bhabhar region. However, there was killings of elephants and at the world war first period, there were left a dozens of elephants. Therefore, government stopped offering forest cutting contracts.
      By 1921, the forests came under Kumaon revenue department and then forest destructions started without conservation.
  Around Second World War, there was heavy demand for wood. Therefore, there was speedy forest destruction.  Government increased export of railway sleepers, bamboo and furniture wood. Due to demand of paper, government cut bamboo and Babar grass without taking future into account.
  In 1916, the forest area was 3301000 acres and it was only 2054707 acres in 1947. This was a nasty destruction of Uttarakhand forests in British period.
