Chapter 4 of CBSE Class 9 History will take the students into the forest and tell them about the variety of ways the forests were used by communities living within them. It will show how in the nineteenth century the growth of industries and urban centres, ships and railways, created a new demand on the forests for timber and other forest products. New demands led to new rules of forest use, new ways of organising the forest. CBSE Class 9 History Chapter 4 Forest Society and Colonialism Important Questions will also cover these concepts and help students to revise the Chapter for the exams.
