The Chipko movement is a Socio- ecological movement that practised the Gandhian methods of non-violent resistance, through the act of hugging trees to protect them from being felled. The modern Chipko movement started in the early 1970s in the Uttarkhand . The landmark event in this struggle took place on March 26 , 1974 , when a group of female peasants from Uttarkhand , India, acted to prevent the cutting of trees and reclaim their traditional forest rights. By the 80s, the movement spread throughout India, and led to formulation of people sensitive forest policies and stopping of open felling of trees in regions as far reaching as Vindhyas and the Western Ghats .
