Forests have a profound role in our lives as more than 1.6 billion rely on the forests for their food, economic activities, or survival. Also, they are habitats for innumerable species and are the basis of ecosystem. However, as human activities, such as manufacturing, increased, forests started to be ruined. Therefore, sustainable forest management and forest conservation has been called for since around 1990s.
