Abstract

Chitrakoot is pilgrimage place of India and situated on boarder of MP and UP. It is known for its natural environment and scenic beauty at present natural environment of this area is degrading due to conversion of forested land in to agricultural land. This is a tropical forest and characterized by mature dry deciduous species. Factors responsible for Forest fire is fue l type, elevation, slope and aspect. Fire risk zonation map gene rated shows, very high risk zone is scattered on high altitude of area, highly risk zone is scattered in forest, and moderate risk zone is found in small patches in forest and in entire agricultural land. Low risk zone is found in north and north east part of area.
