Discussion and Conclusion- This article represents concise information of Vrikshayurved plantation techniques for seed propagation, grafting, stem propagation, tuber propagation and plant transplantation. All these methods are affordable, natural, and chemical free. All substances used by Vrikshayurved methodology have its Ayurvedic significance. Thus, Vrikshayurved and Manushya Ayurved are interdependent. Use of Vrikshayurved in modern agriculture and forestry can result in better agriculture system and sustainable forestry. Hence formation of standard guidelines for Vrikshayurved methodologies through research work is mandatory for better tomorrow.
