Abstract: The articulation of any concrete environmental policy witnessed retention of natural landscapes and withdrawal of any allows of destruction of natural resources and consequent export to other nations. Such retention no doubt seems to be very obvious to indigenous power groups but appears to be a mismatch strategy to a foreign imperial power. Indian forestry between 1865-1947 witnessed such total destruction and exportation of forest products and more particularly the timbers. The opening of Indian forest department in 1864 and its grand restructuring into Imperial Forest Research Institute in 1906 bore testimony to this phenomenon where application of science was made to treat the Timbers to increase its sustainability and durability. The present paper wishes to highlight the treatment procedures that were developed by the forest Research Institute.
