Guideline: Taking the protection and improvement of bio-environment
as the emphasis, Guangdong Forestry Administration will deepen
the classified management reform to adjust the forestry industry
structure and boost the ecological public forests plantation.
By means of administrating forests according to law, developing
forestry science and technology, Guangdong forestry will make
more progress in the protection and management of resources as
well as the contribution to the sustainable development and the
socialistic modernization of Guangdong economy.
Goals: Till the year 2015, to become a province of biological
forest, Guangdong is obliged to concentrate on the tasks abbreviated
as "3" ,"8","4","5".
--"3" means three systems: this task is to build up
a stable ecological public forests system, which is a harmonized
forestry system of first, secondary and tertiary industries, also
an effective socialized service system.
--"8" means the eight biological projects. The tasks
include the ecological public forests in the valley of "4
main rivers of Guangdong", nature reserve, costal protective
forests, farmland and forestland network, green passage, mangrove,
urban forestry and treatment of soil the water erosion.
--"4" means the four main industry forests plantation:

volume above 473,000,000 m3 and that in urban area, green coverage
40%, green land rate 30% and public green land area above 12 m2
Here in front of us is the beautiful blue print of sustainable
