Annual Report on Forest and Forestry for Fiscal Year 2014

 

The government submitted the Annual Report on Forest and Forestry in Japan for Fiscal 2014, which was approved in a Cabinet meeting on May 29.

Four significant topics in fiscal 2014 were shown in the annual report: 1) Forestry jobs got some attentions in a movie titled Wood Job!, 2) The road map toward propagation of cross laminated timber (CLT) was released, 3) Mountain Day was established as a new national holiday, and 4) Major mountain disasters occurred in Nagano and Hiroshima Prefectures.

It is planned to establish a production system of 500,000 cubic meters of CLT by fiscal 2024 and to expand demand for wood, by showing the concrete road map for propagation of CLT for the future.
