In this study, Grewia optiva was recorded as dominant fodder tree species in lower to middle Himalayan region, however, Celtis australis, Morus serrata, Bauhinia variegata and Toona serrata were also used for fodder purpose in the lower and middle elevations of the study area under Indigenous Agroforestry. Tree species like Quercus leucotrichophora, Quercus floribunda were used in middle to higher elevation under Indigenous Agroforestry as main fodder tree species.
