ABSTRACT

With the Liberation from the Japanese ruling, forest-products supplies were windling as North Korea block up the stream of distribution. on the other hand demand for forest-products increased as the urban population increase rapidly. As a result the price had soared. At that time the owner of forests cut down to sell them. The pace of deforestation was so great that the government decide to set up Tree-planting Plan The Plan that the government offered was organizing the forestry mutual-aid society and the forest land-owners' cooperative society. But this was similar to that of Japanese Government-General in choson. The organizing of the forestry mutual-aid society was discussed for the first time when the government submitted 'Act of forest conservancy' to National Assembly. The owner of forests was against that. For they worried about the land reform that would raise by this act. but with the appearance of the Park Chung-hee regime, the discussion building the forestry mutual-aid society had resumed and finally it launched. The forestry mutual-aid society was comprised of local residents, and mobilized them to levied service such as tree-planting on the national forest or the private forest that belong to landowners.
