The pollution-beleaguered country plans to increase forest coverage to 23 percent of its total landmass by the end of the decade.

In addition to the abundance of trees, the government has enacted an “ecological red line” program, reports Stanway, a plan that will require provinces and regions to restrict “irrational development” and limit building near rivers, forests and national parks. Fifteen provinces have already created plans, with the other 16 provinces to follow suit this year.
