Keywords:Air dose rate, forest, Fukushima dai-ichi nuclear power plant, Fukushima prefecture, radioactive cesium

Air dose rate which was collected at forests in Fukushima prefecture at 2011 (n=391), 2014 (n=285) and 2016 (n=100) were analyzed. They were grouped by 5 kinds of forest tree types. The decreasing rate of air dose rate was delay at Japanese cedar forest in 2014. However, it was improved by 2016.
