The most recent advances in research on coastal saline soil rehabilitation and utilization based on forestry approach are discussed. The forestry approach is emphasized rather than physical or engineering measures to ameliorate saline soils, which is significant for coastal environmental improvement and land resources expansion. Coastal Saline Soil Rehabilitation and Utilization Based on Forestry Approaches in China is a useful reference for researchers using techniques of ecology, forestry and agronomy.
