1. The notion of private property is not important to protect the forest. For example – the tribal people do not have the notion of private property in land and all clan members use the forest with the consent of the village elders. Each family has a customary right over the land they cultivate.
Therefore, the notion of private property is not suitable in such circumstances.
2. All forests need to be protected by human beings is a fact of matter. Humans are responsible for the excessive cutting of trees and exploitation of forest resources in today’s time. Therefore, it is the Humans who have to protect their natural environment, not only for themselves but also for their future generations.
3. Over the centuries most people living on earth have not reduced their dependence in forest for their livelihood and therefore forests continue to be of immense importance to many such people. For example – it is a place for raw material such as timber, bamboo, beedi leaf or hunt animals for the purpose of selling them in the market.
