       Forestry Research in Uttar Pradesh, started way back in 1918 with the appointment of Mr. E.A. Smithies, of Indian Forest Service as State Silviculturist. Later on, with gradual expansion of the research setup, two more Silviculturists were appointed. The need for intensive research to increase the overall productivity of the forest was realized and as a result State Forest Research Laboratory was established at Kanpur in 1970. Subsequently this laboratory was upgraded into the State Forest research institute, in 1993.


        The research wing of UPFD, including the SFRI, Kanpur has been given the responsibility of undertaking the scientific research, development and application in forestry and allied natural resources, leading to development of appropriate technologies for efficient management and utilization of trees and other forest resources through increased sustainable availability of trees / forest products and their, associated services for all time.

Location :

      SFRI, Kanpur, is located centrally in the state of Uttar Pradesh. It is about 90 Kms south of Lucknow. The campus forms the part of famous Allen forest in the northern part of Kanpur city. Kanpur is well connected by Air as well as Rail. The nearest Airport, Amousi (Lucknow) is about 80 Kms. Kanpur Central Railway station is about 8 Kms. from FRI campus.

Organization :

       Forest Research Institute , Uttar Pradesh, is headed by the Chief Conservator of Forests, who is also the Director of the Institute. The Head-Quarter of Silviculturists, Southern Region is also located in the campus. The Institute has two more regional-centers one at CB Ganj, Bareilly, and another at Ram Nagar (Varanasi) head by the State Silviculturist. The state Silviculturist are the senior members of the Indian Forest Service. Each Silviculturist is being assisted by an assistant Silviculturist who is a member of state forest service. Each regional-center of the institute has further centers of specialty for conducting field trials.

       FRI, UP has facilities of conducting Laboratory as well as Field Research relating to various aspects of forestry. The major thrust areas of forestry research are as follows :

1.      Increasing Productivity of the Forests through Tree improvement                                  programmes.

2.      Planting Material Improvement.

3.      Supply of Quality Seeds.

4.      Development of Suitable Planting Techniques for Refractory Areas.

5.      ex-situ as well as in-situ conservation of Medicinal Plants.

6.      Development of suitable Agro-Forestry Models.

7.      Ecology and Pollution related studies.

8.      Standardization of Cultivation Techniques of some important Medicinal Plants.

9.      Evaluation of suitability of various Silvicultural Systems.

10.  Publications of Technical Bulletins as well as Lab. to land leaflets.

List and rates of collection of quality seeds 


1.      Tree improvement for some important forestry species. ( funded  through  State sector scheme)

2.      Development of disease resistant improved protocol for micropropagation of         Shisham and Rudraksha  (funded by CST UP)

3.      Extension and technology demonstration for  in vitro clonal multiplication of         Bamboo and Shisham   their establishment in UP. ( funded by DST,GOI)

4.      Ex-situ conservation of medicinal plants and establishment of herbal gardens         (funded by NMPBGOI)



Research wing has developed new technologies for clonical multiplications, vermi composition and afforestation of degraded lands in Uttar Pradesh. It has also developed new technologies for pollution abatement through  afforestation.. Some of the significant achievements are listed below:


         1.   Improvement in nursery technology and use of root trainers for producing quality                seedlings an

           Clonal multiplication of tree species like Eucalyptus, Dalbergia sissoo, Bamboo etc.

        2.   Development of new poplar clones and research on suitability of poplar clones                indifferent 

               Agro-Climatic zones.

       3.   Establishment of seed production Area, seedling seed production area, and clonal               seed orchard 

             of Eucalyptus hybrid, Tectona grandis, Bombax ceiba, Dalbergia sissoo, Acacia               nilotica and 

       prosopis  juliflora.

4.   Supply of quality seed to different forest divisions.

5.   Developing technique for Vermicomposting with the help of red-worms.

6.   Suitable models for afforestation of saline-alkali soils (user), ravines & brakish water areas of 

      Utter Pradesh.
