Is Korea’s national reforestation program the most successful?

    One of the most successful national reforestation effort is the one undertaken in South Korea beginning in the 1960s. By the end of the Korean War, South Korea was almost totally deforested by a combination of heavy logging and reliance on fuelwood during the Japanese occupation. Relying on the creation of village cooperatives, hundreds of thousands of people were mobilized to dig trenches and to create terraces for supporting trees on barren mountains. Today forests cover 65 percent of the country, an area of roughly 8 million hectares.
