What is Uma Forestry Association?
Approximately 70% of Japan’s land is forest, and approximately 70% of this is privately owned forests. Forestry cooperatives are
cooperatives established under the Forestry Cooperative Act and whose members are forest owners. The Uma Forestry Association’s biggest mission is to effectively utilize the forest resources created in a recycling-oriented society. It is said that interest in forestry is decreasing due to a generational change among cooperative members. We will work together to protect our rich forests.
