Reforestation in the Republic of Vietnam
Abstract:More than two million hectares of forest land need reforestation in the Republic of Vietnam. Contrary to popular opinion, the deforestation of most of this large area has occurred as a result of forces other than war although warfare has taken its toll. Increasing use of modern reforestation methods together with methods long used in Southeast Asia, has resulted in an increase in annual accomplishments from practically none in 1971 to 15,000 hectares in 1974.
