Abstract or Summary
  • School forests in South Korea are trees and vegetation areas within schoolyards, and they provide natural environments for schools and neighborhoods. After the Korea Forest Service (KFS) and local governments create these school forests, the management of school forests transfers to the host schools. Some studies suggest that experiences with school forests positively affect student temperament. However, little is known about how schoolteachers use school forests or how school forests are managed. This study addresses these knowledge gaps by exploring schoolteachers’ opinions on school forests. Data were obtained from an online survey of schoolteachers in South Korea (N = 149). This survey found that schoolteachers frequently visit school forests, but their most significant problem is a lack of time for planning their use of school forests. Furthermore, schoolteachers are satisfied with school forest management. However, this survey showed that schools experience a lack of maintenance funding and a lack of expert advice in management. The KFS and local governments can use these results to support the management of school forests.
