China’s ‘State Forestry Administration has released details of its latest in a long series of Five year plans which aims to continue to manage and to expand the forestry stock by means of even more hectares of plantations.

If the new plan, the 13th in the series, is a success and if we look at the increased figures achieved by the 12th then China’s ‘forest stock’ will grow { no pun intended) to nearly one and a half billion cubic metres. All of this continuing and re forestation means that China’s output of flooring continues to rise into the hundreds of billions of cubic square metres.

This is a clear case of having the foresight and the ability to see the wood and the trees!
