Forest Technology and Management Research Center (FTMRC) is developing various forestry technologies for achieving a circular economy of forest resources.
The main forestry technologies being researched in the FTMRC are: Nursery practice and afforestation and reforestation technologies, Economic forest development and long-term forest management technology, Field-tailored mechanized forest work system application technology, and Forest management-based efficiency technology.

Nursery and Reforestation

We are conducting research on development of advanced smart nursery practice techniques for a high-quality seedling production system, and improvement of afforestation and reforestation technologies for promoting timber value.
