Abstract: The present article has for its main highlighted discussion the Forests of Coorg which attracted colonial attention of regeneration and extraction from 1884 onwards and the process continued in full swing till 1912. Here an attempt has been made to study the timber resources of the reserved forests of Coorg.The forests of Coorg have been studied to identify the development of a reductionist trend that became noticeable in the regeneration and production of only timber growing trees. This reductionism simplified the complex and diverse ecosystem and created a kind of mono-cultured ecology that featured only timber growing trees and their extraction.
