Legal protection of forests Forest Conservation

A site comparison study in 2005 in temperate broadleaf forest in Iran (Alijanpour & Mahmoudzadeh 2007) found that forest protection increased the density of young trees. Thirty years after an area was protected, the average number of new trees was higher in protected (530/ha) than in unprotected areas (390/ha). New tree density was monitored in 77 plots (0.1 ha) in one protected and one unprotected forest sites (485 ha each).
