Time:2022-05-31 16:07:26

The Forestry and Farmland Bureau of Hebei Province recently issued a five-year plan (2021-25) to increase the number of green spaces in rural areas.


The document proposes that by 2025, Hebei will add more green spaces for 4,000 villages and establish 750 provincial forest villages.


The government will crack down on the use of farmland for non-agricultural purposes, and will plant more economically-productive arbors and trees. The natural landscapes, history, culture, and local customs of villages will also be preserved.


Government officials are urged to protect the existing forests and green space in the countryside, especially ancient trees.
