In recent years, more and more forests are being abandoned or poorly managed. Also, the farms and mountainside hamlets that have been abandoned have been destroyed due to the waning of forestry and the shrinking or aging of the population in the area. This destruction has in turn threatened the environment for our water supply sources. In order to guarantee clean and delicious drinking water for future generations, we need to act now to restore our mountains and forests to health while making a conscious effort to create an environment where local residents, essential for forest management and maintenance, can continue to live in good health, high spirits, and with peace of mind.
