Forestry is the science and art of tree resources, including natural stands and plantations. The main goal of forestry is to implement and create systems that allow forests to continue a sustainable provision of services and environmental supplies. The challenge of forestry is to produce systems that are socially accepted while maintaining resource and any other sources that might be affected. 

Modern forestry generally covers a wide range of concerns, including assisting forests to provide lumber as raw material for wood products, natural water quality management, wildlife habitat, landscape, recreation and community protection, aesthetically appealing landscapes, employment, biodiversity management, erosion control, watershed management, and preserving forests as ‘sinks’ for atmospheric carbon dioxide.

Forest ecosystems come out to be seen as the most important component of biosphere, and forestry has came forth as a vital field of applied art, science, and technology.
