  25. 25. Conclusion Social forestry which is an appealing land-use strategy by local poor landless community has been in practice in Bangladesh for more than twenty years. It has become a highly attractive and acceptable programme to the rural people, especially the landless and small farmers. In this regard, TMSS has taken several initiatives for the development of social forestry, but it is not sufficient. Government should come forward for the improvement of rural people through social forestry in collaboration with TMSS. • 25
