Since its establishment in 1991, the Western Regional Office of Forest Service has managed approximately 230,000 ha of national forests in the southwestern region, which covers five provinces and 55 cities and towns, including parts of Jeollanam-do, Jeollabuk-do, and some areas of Gyeongsangnam-do. We implement forest policies across various sectors, including forest resources, forest disaster management, and forest welfare.

Forests fulfill various functions, including providing timber, absorbing carbon, conserving water resources, protecting ecosystems, creating jobs and forest welfare. Recently, awareness of forests has increased due to rapid climate change, increasing particulate pollution and declining biodiversity, highlighting the critical importance of government-owned forests, whose functions cannot be fulfilled by privately owned forests.

In the future, we will push forward with and manage government-owned forest management projects tailored to regional characteristics. We will also promote national forest policies in cooperation with local communities, contributing to the creation of forest jobs and dedicating ourselves to the prevention of various forest disasters such as pests, diseases, landslides, and forest fires.

Furthermore, we strive to develop into the Service that actively communicates with the public and incorporates their opinions in order to promote mutual well-being and coexistence. We ask for your continued interest and support in our efforts to become the Western Regional Office of Forest Service recognized and respected by the public.

Thank you.
