Hakodate Photo Exhibition Part 9: Forestry
It started on April 17.

According to the 2020 census, the number of people engaged in forestry has been on a long-term downward trend, and the aging of the forestry industry has been progressing, with 25% of the population aged 65 or older.

The demand for timber itself has continued to decline, pushed by imported timber, which is competitive in terms of price and quantity, and this has led to a noticeable shift away from the forestry industry.


Due to its frequent coverage in the media, the public image of logging is that "logging = destruction of nature," and I too have been under the misapprehension that this is the case.

Excessive logging can greatly disturb the ecosystem, causing landslides and loss of nature's cleansing function, but effective logging can help protect nature.

We were able to capture the daily lives of these forestry-around-the-forest people.

We hope that many of you will be able to view this season's exhibition. Please stop by G-Square.
