The high diversity of trees, shrubs and herbs was found in Hill Base as compared to Hill Slope and Hill Top. The decreasing in the number of seedling and sapling in Hill Slope due to higher anthropological pressure on trees and another side increasing in the number of shrubs and herbs mainly Parthenium hysterophorus and Cynodon dactylon was reported in Hill Slope, because opening of canopy and anthropological interference provides greater opportunities for the recruitment of these species. Pinus roxburghii was the dominant species which are formed Chirpine type of forest. It was also observed that, studied forest is under risk and will be vanished soon if not maintained properly.
