Suwon Experimental Forests location image

The Suwon Experimental Forests are scattered near Suwon city, Gyeonggi-do province with a small area. All of the forests are located under the altitude of 210 m a.s.l. and have a mild slope. Most of the forests have a good access because they are adjacent to the roads.

  • EF in Suwon city : Since the clonal archives of red pine and Korean pine were established in 1962, the forest has played a major role in developing tree breeding technologies.
  • EF in Hwaseong city : The hybridization breeding of pines and the provenance tests of introduced tree species have been performed.
  • EF in Yongin city : Poplar breeding programs have been carried out and used as a model forest to showcase breeding activities.
  • EF in Yangpyeong-gun : The provenance tests of introduced trees have been conducted.

Status of the forest

With the exception of experimental sites, most of the forests are composed of pitch pines aged between 30-40. The averaged height and diameter at breast height (DBH) of pitch pines are 10 m and 10-20 cm, respectively. Oaks and shrubs such as bushclover are also occurred.
