Respect Cooperation Creation Sharing

What we do
1. Environmental Restoration
Drawing from the ideas, experience and technologies of others, enhance the degree of forest management, expedite environment restoration and promote natural ecological processes.
2. Ecological Conservation
Bio-diversity protection: Set up a bio-diversity demonstration area and popularize advanced technologies.
Wetland protection: Establish a wetland conservation area; restore wetlands for their various benefits.
Forest fireproofing: launch a forest fire hazard rating and supervision system for fire prevention and control.
Forest Health protection: Monitor and manage insect and disease pests: incorporate remote sensing technology, impact prediction and biological control including use of natural enemies and quarantine protocols.
High-value forest protection: Identify, describe and protect forests valuable for environmental, social or economic reasons.
3. Urban Forest and Greenbelt Management
Introduce advanced ideas, suitable plant selection, urban forestry and greenbelt management technology, as well as resource protection and utilization protocols.
4. Integrated River Basin Management
Establish community participation in sustainable natural resource management for river basins, including a model to demonstrate enhanced capacity for community development.
5. Environmental Training and Capacity Development
International Training: Set up an international training network for ecology and the environment to provide training on current technical problems in our China.
Community Training: raise the consciousness of forest farmers, peasants, and middle school students toward environmental protection and the environmentally friendly development.
6. Green Industries
Seek international support for green industries and build a platform for cooperation between Beijing and foreign enterprises.
Fruit Industry: Introduce organic farming technologies and methods to enhance abilities to market and distribute products.
Horticulture Industry: Production and processing technology for high quality varieties, including seedling and seed production; production management and marketing technology; research and develop local premium flower varieties; cooperate with international horticultural enterprises in establishing seed supplies.
Eco-tourism: Design forest urban and rural landscapes and develop and manage scenic areas, while harmonizing the interests of the tourist industry with a healthy forest environment; publicize the role of forests for society, the economy and the environment.
Forest carbon sequestration: Cooperate with partners in the implementation of carbon sequestration projects.
7. Forest Certification
Establish forest certification organization, train forest certifiers, conduct forest certification, promote the participation of all related parties in the effective protection and sustainable management of forest.
8. Organize International Exchanges
Organize various international or domestic seminars and forums concerning eco-environment; organize oversea reviews and trainings; organize the edition, translation and publishing of all sorts of publications associated with the industry.

Our way of working

Exchange, cooperate, introduce, research and test, demonstrate and publicize methods and standards.

What we have done

1. Restoration of Vegetation in Infertile Areas
We cooperate with Germany, Korea and Japan in vegetation restoration and forest management, introducing and promoting new methods and technologies to restore vegetation in infertile areas.
2. Promote Advanced Ideas in Forest Development
Participative Community Development
Integrated River Basin Management
Forest Management for natural forests of native species
Forest Health
Prevention and Control of Desertification
Forest Certification
The idea of management of natural native forests of native species and maintaining forest health has been accepted by the government and listed in the guidelines of the “11th Five-Year Plan” of Beijing for forestry development.
3. Control Sand Erosion using Vegetation and Introduction of New Species
(1). Tested the idea of an “ecological mat” of oil palm, explored planting restoration technologies in infertile sandy areas damaged by wind, areas disturbed by mining and road building, searched for new materials for sand prevention technology in North China;
(2). Cooperated with the Laurence Nursery of Germany in introducing gardening tree;
(3). Cooperated with the Canadian Forest Service in introducing and testing North American trees in Chinese environments.
4. Capacity Development
(1). Environmental protection education: Combined with Sino-Germany forest industry technology cooperation project, we conducted environmental protection education and training for 2,000 students of 6 schools in the upper reaches of Miyun Reservoir river basin, which is the main drinking water source of Beijing.
(2). Agricultural technological training: Combined with the structure adjustment of agriculture, we conducted training for farmers on orchard management and planting technology.
(3). Training for women: We conducted training for rural women on how to utilize small loans to invest in their future and the need for environmental protection, etc.
(4). Forest technological training: As of 2005, we held 20 training classes for over 1000 people. We aided 100 person times technicians and managers to study abroad.
(5). Seminars: We conducted several seminars on water protection, forest certification, forest health, participative project planning and more.
5. Exchanges and Visits
(1). As of 2005, we have received more than 1,000 officials, scholars and experts from all over the world to whom we have effectively publicized and demonstrated the achievements of Beijing forest restoration.
(2). Utilization of volunteers: We have cooperated with Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and accepted Korean forest volunteers to work in the Badaling Forestry Centre; hosted volunteers from the China Academy of Social Sciences, who assisted with the project and we established a rural demonstration base for public service popularization.
6. Friendship Forests
The establishment of friendship forests provides international friends, environmental protection organizations and businesses that care for environment with a communication platform to exhibit their own culture, enlarge their influence and collaborative teamwork. Cooperating with the embassies of Korea, Malaysia and Deusche Gesellschaft fur Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH, the American Citibank and the Korean Adolescent Future Forestry Center, we established, respectively the “Sino-Korea Friendship Forest, the Sino-Malaysia Friendship Forest, the Sino-Germany Friendship Forest, the Sino-US Friendship Forest and the Sino-Korea Undergraduate Friendship Forest”.
7. Publications
To better introduce the various technologies and to present how forest management is accomplished both at home and abroad and to provide guidance for forestry practices, we successively translated and edited the publications: “A Hundred Years in American Forestry”, “Technical Manual for Water Conservancy”, “Colour Pictures of Beijing Forests”, “Technical Manual on the Operation of Native Natural Forests”, “Manual on Healthy Operation of Forests”, “Technical Manual for the Application of Eco-mats” and more. In combination with the implementation of multiple projects, we compiled and printed the promotional brochures for Sino-Germany, Sino-Korea, Sino-Japan and Sino-Malaysia cooperation projects, which increased their impact and expanded their audience on eco-environmental issues.

In the past years we have long maintained good relationships with several government organizations, such as Deusche Gesellschaft fur Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH, KfW Bankengruppe, United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service, Japanese International Cooperation Agency, Korean International Cooperation Agency, Korean Science Institute of Mountainous Forests, Malaysian Technology & Science Department, Malaysia Palm Oil Board, Malaysian Chinese Embassy, Holland Agriculture, Nature & Food Quality Department, China Forestry Society, United Nations Development Program. We also strive for close cooperation with NGOs and will continue to expand cooperation such as with World Wildlife Fund, Japan Forest Technology Agency, Japan Asian Association and Asian Friendship Society, PPH. We have also maintained the mutual communication and cooperation with many world-renowned enterprises, such as CHM2-IDC, American Citibank and German Laurence Nursery.
