The value of forest resources is receiving a great deal of international attention, since the world is facing environmental and climate challenges. Along with this trend, there is increasing demand for and growing interest in forest technologies.
The KFS has established a master plan for forest technology development, and has been promoting technical researches on new varieties development and mass propagation of high- valued forest products. These researches are also focusing on climate change response and energy transition of forest resources. The KFS also works on technology education for forestry technicians, and supports basic sciences so as to facilitate better performances and stable implementation in researches. The KFS has organized an industry-academic-research cooperation team with the view of solving technical obstacles likely to occur on sites by developing green technologies. Moreover, it is seeking new potential in forestry R&D which can be playing a key role for low carbon green growth.
