Environmental concerns have been raised recently due to rapid urbanization and increasing population. More urbanities tend to get more interested in well-being and quality of life, and there is a growing demand for green spaces in urban areas. Therefore, the KFS has been endeavoring to provide more green spaces for the people in urban areas, meeting one of forest management objectives, which is 'greening for tree-full city'.
Benefits of urban forests include reduction of pollution and noises, enhancement of air quality, improvement of healthy lifestyle, protection of ecosystems, and improvement of city landscapes. To provide greener and more restful areas, roadside trees are being planted and urban and school forests are being created.
