Forests represent some of Taiwan's most valuable natural resources and occupy about 58% of Taiwan’s total area. The Forestry Bureau under the Council of Agriculture, Executive Yuan, manages Taiwan's forests for recreation by domestic and international visitors, as well as explains the government's forest conservation policies.
