Abstract

The objectives of this study were to analyze the situation and problems of promoting the business of the non-national forest in Jeonbuk Province, and to activate the non-national forest management for the improvement of its income. To understand the current status of the non-national forest, data was surveyed and analyzed from 14 cities and counties in the Jeonbuk Province. In result, one of the reasons for stagnant non-national forest management is that there was no security of commercial succession in the non-national forest. The key to successful non-national management is a proper understanding of public interest of the worth of forests and the new strategy of non-national forests as a tertiary industry because economic management of the forest is difficult in the current situation. In addition, investment of non-timber products and launching the supports of non-national forests are required from the local government since the shortterm forest products have a high possibility of success as strategic sources of high income. Jeonbuk Province has to adopt the business items suitable to the actual circumstances and the methods that can promote management of the non-national forest.
