Arbor Day in China 2021

Arbor Day in China 2021

March 12, 2021 is the 43rd Arbor Day in China. From July 1, 2020, the Arbor Day has been written into the newly revised "Forest Law of the People's Republic of China".

According to the Communiqué on Land Greening Status in China in 2020 issued by the Office of the National Greening Committee, in 2020, China will complete 6.77 million hectares of afforestation, 8.37 million hectares of forest tending, 2.83 million hectares of grassland improvement, and 2.096 million hectares of sand prevention and control.

And a research report released by NASA in 2019 shows that from 2000 to 2017, the new green leaf area (total area of plant leaves) on the earth is equivalent to an extra piece of Amazon rain-forest; among them, China has the highest net growth rate (17.8%). )

After decades of afforestation projects, these shelter-belts have effectively curbed sandstorms, desertification, and soil erosion, and have also improved the ecological environment. The local government has combined afforestation with industrial production, coordinated environmental and economic development, and helped alleviate poverty and become rich.

Take the Mu Us Desert as an example. In the past 70 years, generations of Chinese foresters have planted trees to control sand, turning the "barren land" desert into a piece of green land.

●Returning Farmland to Forest and Grassland

From 1999 to 2019, a total of 508 million acres of farmland has been converted to forests and grasslands, including 199 million acres of cropland to forests and grasses, 263 million acres of barren hills and wastelands, and 46 million acres of mountains and forests.

Taking Shaanxi Province as an example, 41.06 million mu of farmland has been returned to forests and grasslands. From 2000 to 2018, the average percentage change of the vegetation index in Shaanxi Province was 17.9%, twice the national average, and the forest coverage rate in Shaanxi Province was over 45%.

In Wuqi County, Shaanxi Province, the old loess high slope are covered with colorful and green plants.

●"Internet + National Voluntary Tree Planting" Continued to be Launched

Citizens can participate in national greening projects through official website adoption and donation. Or as long as you open the Alipay app, you can harvest virtual green energy based on your daily exercise volume, green travel, etc., and you can plant trees and protect green spaces after reaching a certain amount, according to statistics.

●Planting trees should start from children

Chinese children learn to understand Arbor Day from kindergarten. On March 10 this year, international students from Zhejiang University of Technology and children from the kindergarten affiliated to Qianjiang Foreign Language Experimental School participated in the Arbor Day.

From the country to the enterprise, to the people, the concept of "Lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets" has been deeply rooted in the production and life of Chinese people.
