ABSTRACT Because of the wide, scattered and large part of the forest areas being located far away from the settlement areas,
transportation can only be realized through forest roads and the importance of transportation of forest roads has been
emphasized. The grading method and the quality classification were made based on the criteria of the study.
In this study, for each of the forest roads, technical characteristics, economic characteristics, characteristics of the road through
which the road passes and disturbances on the roadside were assessed., the forest roads of the Gerede Management Directorate
Aktaş Operation Chief affiliated to the Bolu Forest Regional Directorate in Turkey were handled in terms of "scoring and
evaluation of existing forest roads".
According to the findings obtained, the forest roads selected for the evaluation and evaluation of the existing forest roads subject
to the survey; the names of the area in which they are located, the status of the existing roads are classified according to the
reasonableness of the criterion of the criterion of work, by supporting the photographs and graded by considering the positive
and negative situations. In the light of this information, 6 (B type) forest roads in the study area with a total length of 29 km
have been investigated. In the results of working; one of ecological, economic, social and technical aspects of the forest roads in
this planning unit III. quality class and 5 of the II. forest roads have been identified.
