Abstract

Kim Jong Un in 2015 asserted North Korean institutional desire for the generation of “Forests of Gold.” Forestry practice has been a vital element in North Korean developmental culture since its foundation in 1948. This paper will recount the forest histories of North Korean political and developmental culture. It will consider the interplay between nationalism, identity and narrative and the nation’s forests, especially the role they have played within North Korea’s sense of the authenticity of its own topography. The paper will consider Pyongyang’s forest present, and contemporary focus on afforestation and arboreal practice in today’s North Korea.
