The study analyses, compares, and contrasts the forest cover of three Indian states of Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh, and Jharkhand that were carved out in November 2020 from their parent states of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Bihar, respectively, with a vision to give an expected boost regional development. Using the forest cover data from Forest Survey of India, Dehradun, Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change, Government of India, sponsored by the Government of India State of Forest Reports (2001–2019), statistical techniques such as analysis of variance are used to compare variance and analyze and draw information and insights about the forest green cover, which is reflective of the environmental development during their 19 years development journey. The analysis of variance results were significant, demonstrating that there were substantial differences in forest cover between year and state levels. Year was a significant main effect, showing that there were significant changes in forest cover levels by year. State was a significant main effect, showing that there were substantial differences in forest cover by state levels.
