    The Cutting of trees (prohibition) Act, 1992 forbid that no person shall, without prior written approval from authorized officer shall cut, fell or damage trees growing in:

    First Zone (Area adjacent to and beyond the external frontier of Pakistan to a line at four kilometers measured from the external frontiers of Pakistan) if the number of remaining trees in any field falls short of the number to be calculated at the rate of fifteen trees per acre; and

    Second Zone (Area adjacent to and beyond the first zone extending towards Pakistan to a line at four kilometers measured from the first zone) if the number of remaining trees in any field falls short of the number to be calculated at the rate of ten trees per acre.

    This does not apply to a tree growing on land occupied as the site of a town or village or in a dwelling-house.

    Section 3 – It prohibits any person, without prior approval, from cutting, felling or damaging any tree growing in first and second zones as mentioned above.

    Section 4 – It imposes penalty of fine which may extend to five thousand rupees for contravention relating to first zone and imposes penalty of fine which may extend to two thousand and five hundred rupees for contravention relating to second zone.
