Abstract: Forests are the source of livelihoods for billions of living organism. Forests provide food and
shelter to the countless wild habitants, they are acting as a separate eco-system where everything
is depended on each other. The symbiotic relationship in forest eco-system is a live proof of
forest interdependence. Apart from this interdependence of forest eco-system, forests are an
important source of food and other requirements of human also. Forests acts as major source of
food to the millions of forest dwellers or fringe people. From hundreds of years' people were
collecting materials from forests for their food, clothing, shelter and fuel. The development of
nations is still positively related with its forest cover, forests not only provide the direct benefits
like food and fuel but also sustain the space where humans are settled. The overwhelming
importance of forest can be understood from its contribution to eco-system, the eco-system of
which humans are a single part. Forest protect the land for settlement, balance the atmosphere
and conserve the hydrosphere. As for the human development is concerned, forests stable the
land for our settlement, clean the air and provide the water and of these are the better indicators
of sustainable development of human race. Forest also provide multiple direct benefits for the
purpose human development, they provide material to several industries like furniture, paper,
food, medicine and other construction related industries. The benefits from forests are not alike
for all, some are directly while others are indirectly benefited by the forests and some are highly
benefited while others are comparatively low. Several studies on forest dependence has revealed
the significance of forest cover to development of forest fringe villages across the world. Forest
are considered the natural market for forest dwellers where from they get their basic needs of
life. This paper will also try to find out how the fringe villages of Kashmir valley (A Himalayan
valley) are depended on the forest and how the dependence on these forests are changed over the
time. The paper will analyze the collection of NTFP by the fringe population of Uri block of
Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir and how the dynamics of collection has changed.
