A total of 40 plant species were documented, which are used in preparation of different handicrafts like making of rope, toys, meals plate, carry bags, fishing nets, brooms, etc. Among these species, 19 species are trees followed by 8 herbs, 7 climbers and 6 shrubs. Mostly, wood are used for making of furniture and different wood carvings. It has been observed that a very few people are adopting this profession due to less income.
