Abstract

Korean major needle leaf tree and broad leaf tree account for 2,681 thousand and 1,659 thousand. The Korean tree species include 75% of larch, 16% of pine, 3% of rigida, and 3% of white pine, but for Gyeonggi-do, the number of white pine was the most among needle leaf trees and accounted for 34% of them. However, several conditions including lack of labors, insufficient forest management, and low wood price act as factors making the environment of forest management difficult. Accordingly, this study performed a study to identify management problems and promote activation of future forest management, against forest owners of white fine cutting in Gapyeong-gun, Gyeonggi-do, which was known as a representative pine nut producing district, accounting for 9% of the nationwide white pine forest area, 230 thousand ha. As results of the study, it was found that it was impossible practically to fell forest trees by its owner because of problems such as lack of labors and equipments and most of them didn't know existence and role of the Forestry Association well. One-sided presentation of timber price by timber dealers is likely to cause low profit of the forest owners and may be leaded to lowering of their forest management willing. Thus, it seems that more active action of the forestry association is required for efficient control and management of artificial forest in future and forest commencement such as pruning and thinning should be done in order to raise the price of forest tree price in the pulp material level to the level of timber price. And above everything, it was identified that in order to prepare insufficient financial resources for forest commencement, it was required to try to bring up whose purpose of forest possession was not maintenance of ancestral burial ground or property value, but true forest management.
