Flora is moderately diverse with intimate mixture of evergreen and deciduous elements. The area comes under semi-evergreen forest zone but the interplay of biotic factors has changed the original character of the vegetation. There is preponderance of thorny bushes and weed growth (Chromolaena odorata) as under- storey in the forest, wherever there are permanent gaps. Species composition is heterogeneous. Thorny bamboo (Bambusa bambos) occur pure in valleys and mixed with tree growth on hill slopes.Based on the species composition, forests can be classified in the following broad types of Champion & Seth.

The prominent elements of flora are –

Dhaman (Grewia Tiliaefolia), Bankapasia (Kydia calycina), Jamu (Syzyggium Cuminii), Gandhana (Premna mucronata), Kansa (Hymenodictyon excelsum), Kusum (Schleichera oleosa), Marua (Vitex pinnata), Sidha (Lagerstroemia parviflora), Karanja (Pongamia pinnata), Karada (Cleistanthus collinus), Kala Sisoo (Dalbergia latifolia).

Chauldhua (Glycosmis arborea), Jhumpuri (Streblus taxoides), Kamini (Murraya paniculata), Morei (Zanthoxylum rhetsa), Nahalbeli (Cipadessa fruticosa), Atundi (Combretum decandrum) form the shrubby layer, Canes are found dotted in this type, more particularly, in Talabasta, Samantaraipur and Madua area.
