 Sprout regeneration
A process that involves cutting down deciduous broad-leaved oak trees, such as Sawtooth and Konara oak, every 10 to 15 years to bring forth new sprouts from the stumps. By clearing out the tall trees, sunlight is able to reach the forest floor, which allows various plants to grow unimpeded and brings more light to forested areas, thereby creating a more suitable habitat for insects and birds.
 KANTAN HEP
A procedure used to select which regional wildlife should be conserved by designating species of value. This is followed by using diagnostic sheets to perform assessments of those species' habitats in terms of ease of living. KANTAN HEP was developed through a collaboration between Professor Akira Tanaka of Tokyo City University, Fujitsu FIP Corporation and Fujitsu Limited.
