India is a country where forest cover is decreasing day by day and if not looked into it, India will become totally barren land. Presently, India covers 21.5% of forest cover in the world. Stand and Forest have different meaning in forestry. Stand is defined as an aggregation of trees which have same composition, age etc. in common. Hence forest designates aggregation of different stands and conservation is the act or process of conserving. Remote sensing is the study of object without in contact with hand. In here, remote sensing is used to observe the conservation and its economic value. It stratified the stand results into three decision categories: 1) forestry opportunity for economic value, 2) conservation opportunity, 3) areas of conflict 4) forestry mapping and assessment. In all combinations except one, the large majority of stands fall in the category of conflicted values.

Key words: Conservation, Remote Sensing, Economic value, Conflict etc.
