People's participation in raising and protecting trees on lands outside the government forests is vital for the success of social forestry. This paper identifies four types of participation: process, cognitive, interactive and material. For generating process participation the paper recommends the organization of rural contests inviting villagers plans for social afforestation: students camps for planting trees during summer vacation; and afforestation of areas surrounding the places of workshop. For enlisting cognitive participation the paper recommends efforts to involve railways, matchbox and paper industries. Exercise book and calendar manufacturers, and other groups like Theatre Owners, Advertising Agencies, and the Publishers of Comics.
