  • Jianfeng ZhangEmail author


Based on the field investigation and analysis of the greening status of Simen Town in Yuyao City, this study proposes that the planning of forest town construction must be people-oriented, ecological, and forest and water dependence and organic combination with the requirements and objectives of the national forest town construction and the regional characteristics of Simen Town. These characteristics must rely on one another and combine organically. Planning must consider all factors to highlight the characteristics, pay attention to the function of science and education, adapt to appropriate conditions, inherit the principles of history and culture, and promote ecological civilization construction. Moreover, the “one core, two networks, four parks, multiple points” must be adopted in the forest towns of Simen. Finally, the planning layout was explored.
