Summary Most parts of the northeast and northern regions in China belong to the temperate zone. The temperate zone is divided into cold, middle and warm temperate zones. The forests of the northern region in the warm temperate zone have been removed unsustainably since 1,127, while the forests of northeast region in the mid-temperate zone were first disturbed in the late 19th century. The primeval forests in the warm temperate zone have almost disappeared; only a small area of fragmented forest has survived[7]. However, the northeast forest region is one of the largest bases for timber production in China. The restoration of forests in the northeast and northern China, including the loess plateau, is of benefit to biodiversity conservation and the improvement of the natural environment.
