Now to restore these forests, well known landscape designers have prepared the developmental plans for us. As and when financial and administrative support is available, these forests of Braj are being revived.
Currently, the restoration works of some of these forests have already been undertaken and is at different levels. For the restoration and preservation of these forests, the lack of necessary administrative direction posed severe problems. The Braj Foundation had several meetings with the highest level officials of UP Government and as a consequence the cabinet of UP Government has passed a new law in this regard. This is as per the directions of the MOEF.
Gahvarvan, a major grove, situated at the foot of Brahmagiri hills in Barsana, has been completely restored by the Braj Foundation with the help of sponsors like The Indian Oil Corporation. Irrigation facilities are in place to ensure perennial water supply to the trees and plants.
