Literature dealing with Nature and its impacts on human being and animals as a whole is an old phenomenon. But the western scholars term it ecocritical analysis as it relates directly or indirectly for the protection, preservation and the conservation of nature especially forest and trees. The present paper analyses how Robert Frost renders an ecocrtical touch to his poetry in the coating of philosophy that deals with universal truth.
