Forests provide a habit for wild animals and vegetation, as well as playing an important role in air pollution, providing water resources, preserving soil, and offering a place for rest and healing.

The wood produced in forests are used as raw materials for industry. By forming and managing forests, carbon emissions rights can be secured and the biomass can be used as an energy source.

Therefore with 65% of the nation’s land covered by forests and mountains, Korea needs to reconsider the economic value and environmental effects of its forests and make the most of them.

The department of forestry at Chungbuk University aims to produce experts in forestry through a broad coverage of the field. The study of forestry, landscaping, forest economics and forest policies are included in the field. Recently, an associated major of forest healing that is gaining attention has also been established.
