Japan exported 9 billion 800 million yuan worth of timber to the mainland in 2016, an increase of 48% over the previous year.

Reported that, now, after a strong recovery, as of 2016, China's total forest area has reached 258 million hectares, forest coverage rate of 21.93%. It is worth mentioning that China is currently the only country in the world where forest coverage is increasing.

Chinese official release of "national forest management planning in July 26, 2016 (2016 - 2050)", plans to 2020, the national forest coverage rate reached more than 23.04%, forest volume reached 16 billion 500 million cubic meters or more, forest vegetation reserves total carbon reached 95 tons per year, mainly for forest ecological service value reached 15 trillion yuan (RMB, same below) above.

According to the State Forestry Administration issued China planning, forest management will adhere to the function of operation and benefits of co-ordination, to the ecological construction, made of both, with prominent Fu conservation, forest tending; classification management, partition facilities strategy, highlighting the leading function; government support, market driven, business management incentive subject consciousness. "Planning" is divided into two stages, the latest for 2016 - 2020, the long - term for 2021 - 2050.

The recent aim of China's forest management is that by 2020, significant progress has been made in forest management, and the sustainable operation of forests will be promoted in a comprehensive way. Total forest quality and forest quality in key forest areas have reached the same level as the world average during the same period. The stability of forest ecosystem was significantly enhanced, and the ecological services, forest products supply and carbon sequestration capacity of forest were significantly improved.

China's forest coverage rate has increased

China's long-term goal of forest management is that by 2050, forest management has entered the ranks of advanced countries in the world. The contribution of forest management to increasing forest total, improving forest quality and enhancing forest efficiency has been continuously promoted. The national forest coverage rate has stabilized above 26%, and the forest reserves have reached more than 23 billion cubic meters. The total carbon storage of forest vegetation reached more than 130 tons, and the main ecological services provided by forest every year amounted to more than 31 trillion yuan.

According to the national planning and positioning of the main functional areas, and consider the status of forest resources, geographical location, forest vegetation, operating status and development direction, the country is divided into 8 business areas, including the Greater Khingan Range business district, the cold temperate coniferous forest temperate coniferous forest in the southern business district, northeast of deciduous broad-leaved forest in warm temperate zone of North China zone, subtropical evergreen broad-leaved forest and coniferous forest area, southern tropical monsoon forest and forest management area, Yunnan Guizhou Plateau and subtropical coniferous forest area of the Tibetan Plateau, dark coniferous forest management areas in northern grassland desert temperate coniferous forest and deciduous broad-leaved forest zone. According to the ecological location and forest type, each management area has a clear management objective and implements scientific management.

The plan proposes that we should establish a forest management planning system, improve the support policies for public finance, improve the modern financial support policies, deepen the reform of forest resources management, and carry out the natural forest conservation management scientifically.
