According to China's State Forestry Administration, there is a lack of forestation in the country. In order to counteract increasing pollution in major cities the Chinese government has called for the improvement of air quality and city landscaping through the planting of trees in green belts along city borders, along roads and streets, and in parks. To fill the gap between landscape management and supply of tree nursery products, New Plantations will pursue opportunities in this forest product business segment. With its plantation resources and expertise, it can source, supply and manage landscaping products for property developers, local governments and other organizations.
