Ladhatola is a patch of revenue land which has been protected in an age old traditional form. The incessant efforts by the community have regenerated barren revenue patch into thick forest cover. The community is involved in the protection of of Deepak Pahar which is a hillock in the area. Now, the community jointly protects the forest along with the forest department. On the festival of Deepawali, they lights diyas (festive clay lamps) on the hillock to celebrate the significance of forest in their lives.
