  BEIJING - On Jun 5th, the initiation ceremony of the 2018 Forest China large public service activities and the awarding ceremony of Forest Town was held in Beijing, where the Chinese Society of Forestry announced the ultimate outcome of the 2017 “Finding Forest Culture Town”, and 20 towns have been selected, among which only the Tingsiqiao town of Xian’an district and the Dachuan town of Maojian district, Shiyan city are included in the list.

  This selection is chiefly based on the indexes, such as the forest coverage, the green environmental protection concept, the accumulation of ecological culture, and the protection of ecological cultural heritages.

  Tingsiqiao Town is a green demonstration township in Hubei province. In recent years, this town has been stuck to the green development concept and abided by the “2 mountains theory”, simply put, “we want both the lucid water and lush mountains, and also mountains of gold and silver; if we can’t have the both, we’d rather preserve the former, for the lucid water and lush mountains equal to mountains of gold and silver.” Currently, this town has completed afforestation of 3000 mu, with a 62.3% of forest coverage, the forest growing stock of 250 thousand cubic meters, and the forest reserve of over 165 thousand mu.

  After winning the award, the secretary of the Tingsiqiao Town Party Committee, Zhang Xuhua said that the town will put its energy into building cultural and art forests while protecting the ecological forests, combing them with the beautiful village construction and the rural rejuvenation strategy, in order to make the Tingsiqiao Town a genuine forest ecological town.
