In Japan, a lot of man-made forest is not appropriately managed. Considering problems of them and international tendencies, we need to manage forest suitably to regional ecosystems and forestry from now on. This study implicates political measures for it particularly focusing on Japanese private forest, referencing to the forest policy and nature near forestry of Baden-Württemberg in Germany. In conclusion, it is generally necessary to strengthen participations of the administrative authority in private forest maintenance, improve the density of road network in forest and achieve the real decentralization in the field of forest policy, taking care international tendencies. In the forest particularly aimed at fulfilling the multifunction of forest it is necessary to introduce nature near forestry. We should politically support and promote research and development.
