World Forestry: Silviculture in Taiwan
Abstract:Forest types in Taiwan change with altitudes. Under 1,500 feet, tropical forests cover the land and fast-growing trees are planted by private owners. Between elevations of 1,500 and 6,500 feet, the Taiwan Forestry Bureau operates a large afforestation project. Above 6,000 feet, alpine types are preserved as watershed cover and have to be regenerated naturally.
