Guangxi becomes China's largest timber-producing region

NANNING, Feb. 3 (Xinhua) -- South China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region has become the country's largest timber-producing region, according to the local forestry bureau on Wednesday.

Guangxi reported an annual timber production of 25.5 million cubic meters during the last five years, accounting for one third of the total timber production in China.

Forest coverage in Guangxi reached 62 percent by the end of 2015, with 220 million mu (about 14.7 million hectares) of forest land.

"The total output for the forest industry hit 430 billion yuan (about 65.4 billion U.S. dollars) in the last five years," said Huang Xianyang, director of the local forestry bureau.

China launched its first national forest reserve pilot project in Guangxi. So far, the region has 2.3 million mu of forest reserves and is planning to build the country's largest timber reserve, according to Huang.
