Quantitative analysis of five (05) broad leaved and four (04) fruit tree species viz., Populus deltoides, Populus nigra, Robinia pseudoacacia, Salix alba, Salix fragilis, Malus domestica, Prunus domestica, Prunus dulcis and Pyrus communis respectively was carried out to present the possibility of pruned biomass from broad leaved and fruit cultivars for firewood production. Pruning’s/wood samples of various trees were collected from four prevalent agroforestry systems of District Budgam of Kashmir valley viz., Boundary plantation, Homegarden, Horti-agricultural and Horti-silvi-pasture system. The results of the investigation revealed that Robinia pseudoacacia elucidated highest FVI as 948.05 and Prunus dulcis as 1067.42 among broad leaved and fruit trees species respectively.

Keywords: FVI, Broad leaved species, Fruit trees, agroforestry systems, Kashmir valley.
