Abstract:Forest research and education began to take modern form about 100 years ago, and extension work is about 30 years old. One national institute, 50 prefectural organizations, many schools, and some private companies conduct research in most phases of forestry and timber utilization. Four-year courses in forestry and engineering are offered at 26 schools, which currently enroll almost 5,000 students. Extension foresters are stationed in all prefectures and give advice to landowners, including those who are heirs to forest property. Efforts are made to acquaint school children and the general public with the benefits of forests.
