Abstract

Successful forest greening aligned with economic growth implemented by Korea is considered best practice in most developing countries. However, the specific technologies used for this greening process in Korea have been insufficiently described. In this study we extensively reviewed papers published in academic journals and related documents regarding greening projects. We identified significant contributions from five technological areas related to forest greening in accordance with policies: (1) forest survey and inventory; (2) tree improvement; (3) seeds and nurseries; (4) tree planting and tendering; and (5) forest pest control. In conclusion, the forest greening of Korea has been successfully achieved through a combination of investment in forest protection with a well-equipped technological base that has helped us select suitable species, prepare seedlings, and plant and nurture the trees properly. Meanwhile, we also found that official development assistance (ODA) from the international community contributed significantly to the greening activities of Korea to overcome technical and economic limitations.(The rest omitted)
