In this paper, we proposed an assessment system of forest environmental carrying capacity from many aspects and comprehensively evaluated and predicted the forest environmental carrying capacity of 40 cities in the Yangtze River Delta of China by using the proposed deep learning-based model. In addition, the proposed model is used to dynamically evaluate the comprehensive scores of forest environmental carrying capacity of 34 provinces and cities in China between 2015 and 2020. This paper also has the following contributions: (1) a deeply integrated unidirectional bidirectional LSTM considering the correlation of time series is proposed. The bidirectional LSTM network is used to deal with the backward dependence of input data to prevent the omission of some useful information, which is beneficial to the prediction results. (2) In terms of missing data processing, the Mask layer is added to subtly skip the processing of missing data, which will help to enhance the evaluation results.
