Outline

Akane Wood is the name of cedar timber damaged by longhorn beetles because of being planted in areas unsuitable for growing trees. Insect damage drops the value of timber, leading to the decline of the forest industry. To regain the value, plywood manufacturing has been used for the timber. This results in returning funds to mountains so that next-generations can use the money to recreate them. For correct use of mountains, other efforts have also been made, such as not planting cedar trees in those areas.
