Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Forestry mainly refers to the industry based on forest resources, involving forest harvesting and regeneration, forest protection, forest reconstruction, forest tending, processing, and utilization. With the rapid development of the social economy and continuous improvements in human living standards, the demand for forestry products is also increasing. In addition to developing a low-carbon economy, emerging in response to global climate change, the sustainable development of forestry is particularly important. A considerable number of basic theoretical explorations as well as key technological innovation achievements have been published in forest biology, including new variety cultivation theory and technology, forest resource cultivation theory and technology, forest sustainable management theory and technology, economic forest cultivation and product processing, forest ecology, environmental protection, forest resource protection and utilization, urban forest, etc.

This Special Issue, entitled “Advances in the Sustainable Development and High-Value Utilization of Forestry Resource”, seeks the exchanging of high-quality research and review papers related to the sustainable development and utilization of forest resources, but other papers related to forestry are also welcome.
