- The forest cover of the state was recorded at 1,588 sq km in 2017, and 1,580 sq km in the 2015 report.
- “In terms of forest canopy density classes, the state has 28 sq km under very dense forest (VDF), 450.90 sq km under moderately dense forest (MDF), and 1,123.54 sq km of open forest (OF).
- Forest cover in the state has increased by 14.44 sq km as compared to the previous assessment reported in ISFR 2017,”

- Mahendergarh has witnessed the maximum increase in forest cover during this period.
- The tree cover has been found to be 1,565 sq km. (3.54%)
- Total Forest = Forest Cover + Tree Cover = 3.62% +3.54% = 7.16%
- Haryana has registered an increase by 150 sq km in the total tree cover as compared to the previous assessment reported in 2017.
- As per the report, 2.3% of the total forest cover of Haryana has been observed as very highly fire prone, 5.87% as highly fire prone, and 18.08% and 73.72% was found to be moderately fire or less fire prone areas.

- Gurugram Haryana, again, continues to have the lowest forest cover in India, as per the Forest Survey of India’s (FSI) latest report on the state of forests.
- The ISFR 2019 notes an increase in this figure, to 3.62%. Areawise, the state’s forest cover rose by 14.44 square kilometres, which experts said is a ‘minuscule’ and ‘negligible’ increment.
- Haryana’s tree cover, by comparison, increased by 150 square kilometres, coming to a total of 1,565 square kilometres (sqkm).
- Haryana’s forest policy (framed in 2006), “has fixed the goal of achieving 20% Forest and Tree Cover in the state in a phased manner.”
- Of the 44, 212 square kilometres, state area, just 1,602.44 square kilometres are forest cover (as opposed to 1,588 sqkm in 2017).
- Of these, 28 sqkm come under ‘very dense forest’, 451 sqkm come under ‘moderately dense forest’, while 1,124 sqkm come under ‘open forest’ category.
- The FSI has also identified 45 species of trees, 43 species of shrubs and 50 species of herbs in Haryana during its assessment
- The ISFR 2019 also notes that “during the period from January 1, 2015, to February 5, 2019, a total of 1,529 hectares of forest land in Haryana was diverted for non-forestry purposes under the Forest Conservation Act, 1980.”
- Of the state’s 21 districts, Gurugram lost 0.82 square kilometres of forest cover between 2015 and 2017, more than any other district.
- This was followed by Ambala, which lost 0.65 square kilometres of forest cover during the same time.
- Neighbouring Faridabad, meanwhile, lost 0.06 square kilometres of forest cover.
- Panchkula, at 43.51%, has the highest forest cover in Haryana (owing to the presence of the Shiwalik Hills), followed by Yamunanagar (10.94%), Faridabad (10.79%) and Gurugram (9.24%).
- While these districts, along with five others, all recorded loss of forest cover in the ISFR 2019, other districts recorded an increase.
- Even though the forest cover of Haryana has increased by a meagre 0.9% over the last two years, the primarily agricultural state continues to have the lowest forest cover in the country, the FSI report of 2019 reveals.
- Of all the districts, Gurugram has witnessed the highest decline in forest cover since 2017 and the sharpest fall in a decade.
- Haryana has only 3.62% (1,602 sqkm) of its geographical area as forest land, an increase of a little over 14 sq km from 2017 when the state had 3.59% (1,588 sqkm) of forest cover.
- The state is right behind Punjab and Rajasthan which have 3.67% and 4.86% of forest cover respectively.

While there is no change in the ‘very dense forest’ (28 sqkm) and ‘scrub’ (154 sqkm) cover, area under ‘open forest’ increased by 15 sqkm while ‘moderately dense forest’ has 1 sqkm respectively between 2017 and 2019.
- Of the districts, only three districts (out of 22) – Panchkula, Yamunanagar and Faridabad — have more than 10% of their geographical area under forest cover, while ten districts have forest land covering less than 2% geographical area.
- These 10 districts are Jind, Sonipat, Panipat, Rohtak, Sirsa, Palwal, Karnal, Jhajjar and Hisar, and Fatehabad.
- The low forested area can be attributed to the fact that these districts have recently witnessed massive industrialisation and real estate development.
- Over the last two year, forest cover has shrunk in 8 districts, with Gurugram recording the highest decline of about 0.82 sqkm.
- Panchkula has the highest forest cover at 43.51%, due to the Shivaliks. It is followed by Yamunanagar and Faridabad with forest cover of 10.94% and 10.79% respectively.
