Forest resources are the most prominent source of fuelwood in Nepal i.e., around 70% of residential energy comes from this sector (MOF, 2015). The survival of rural households in Nepal is directly linked to forest resources as many of these households are subsistence users of forest products (FAO, 2009). Women were found to be the predominant labor force involved in fuelwood collection in our study area. The sampled household in our study were found to be reliant in fuelwood and other energy sources for energy. Private tree plantation for fodder and fuelwood purposes can act as substitute to fuelwood collected from community forest areas.
