Himalayan vegetation is subjected to various types of disturbances and most of them are either geological or anthropogenic or both. Biodiversity at all hierarchical levels is impacted upon by disturbance of an ecosystem in terms of maintenance and restoration. Protected Areas are forests that have as their primary function the protection of people or assets against the impacts of natural hazards. The main 'product' of these forests are standing trees which act as obstacles to down slope mass movements such as rock falls, snow avalanches, erosion, landslides, debris flows, and floods. The study area is located between 290 24 and 290 27 N latitude and 780 52 and 780 59 E longitude between 280 and 370 m elevation in Uttarakhand Himalaya.
