Sustainable Forest Resources Management of Warm-Temperate Forests

In order to establish a forest resource management strategy in response to climate change, we conducted research on:

  • Forest resource strategy considering the growth and resource characteristics for artificial forest such as cypress, cedar, and black pine trees
  • Estimating and evaluating the extent of northward movement of warm-temperate tree species as a result of climate change
  • The development of customized reforestation and forestry technologies for evergreen broad-leaved tree species.
  • SFM in warm temperate forest zone
