Along with other valuable tree species, Sal is the predominant forested crop in the Shiwalik Circle of the Doon valley. It has been observed that the stock of Sal forests is quickly running out. The influence of Sal ANR (Assisted Natural Regeneration) was investigated in 10 forest ranges of the Shiwalik circle of the Uttarakhand forest department, India, keeping in mind the importance of this tree species. For the purpose of gathering field data that spanned the entirety of the compartment, random sampling was used. For comparison, data from two compartments, Sal ANR and non-ANR (next to ANR), were gathered. Various conclusions were drawn according to the study.
