Sustainable harvesting has developed from a natural harvesting technic, developed from wildcrafting of various medicinal plants, especially for forest grown products, where our farming practice will be nature friendly. These harvesting methods can be practiced in our kitchen garden and farmland, as well.

However, forest farming should be easy, by maintaining the further importance of rare local plants, herbs and creatures as they are keeping our soil healthy, we can have a very little care to keep the organic value in general to increase forest growth because it has built the richest soil on earth, we need to at least keep it and hold it, apart from that we can maximize the advantage from the almost waste and sometime fire risk dumps of our forest, into verity of valuable uses, Finally it requires a diverse management skill, however it has less work to be done into the Sustainable forest management concept, specially pruning, mulching, and cleaning for a good harvest.

Himalayan forest has a multilayer canopy with healthy soil, where plants and animals have got a tremendous relation each other, in the Himalayan white oak height shelter to the berry plant on the hillside, underneath, the love apple grows into the shadow of orchid and they are friendly each other and there are many more herbs and plants together, birds singing, bees roaming over nectar, flower to flower, where a forest deer is grazing in to the hillside farm. A complete habitat for all.

So, wildcrafting is a way to maintain the sunlight and shadow to grow various plants together for a sustainable harvesting, like in a fruit farm, some herbs and vegetables can be grown, significantly together.

Plants too, prefer to grow in each other's relations, where beneath an apple tree, blackberry, yam, ferns, and mushrooms, garlic, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon besides bee keeping in a mixed manner, in natural farming or a modern permaculture, also known as traditional Rishi Kheti or wildcrafting will keep the forest value safe in fact our home yards can be developed as easy by the way that the natural has been given.

Sometimes plants don't like each other because of the soil value will be different, so we priorities the existing local native plants, we want them all to grow happy and easy, a little care will help them to grow in a friendly manner to balance of the PH and to keep some moisture to keep healthy organism is an art of sustainable harvesting practices, we should multiply the forest growth, and a prober management will help to increase the green value.
