About 483 kilometers of the Yangtze River are within theterritory of Jingzhou, which accounts for almost half of the total shoreline inthe province and over 70% of mission of afforestation. The terrain on bothbanks is complex and the lands suitable for afforestation are unevenlydistributed, so the mission of afforestation faces great difficulties. How torestore the green shoreline after dock rectification for the Yangtze Riverprotection? From April 24th to 25th, the onsite meeting of afforestation alongthe Yangtze River banks was held in Shishou, Jingzhou. All the participants inspectedthe afforestation site, exchanged their experiences and praised the afforestationof the Yangtze River in the city.

Jingzhou took the lead to start the afforestationcampaign on both banks of the Yangtze River last year, established the commandoffice, formulated implementation plans for the secretaries at four levels (city,county, town and village) to be responsible for the afforestation. The citytrialed the administration system for the Yangtze River shoreline, deployed oneadministrator every 1km or 2km to realize the transition from post-eventmanagement to prevent problems beforehand; explored multi-investment mechanismto attract joint investment for afforestation funds. Governments at all levelshave invested 1.407 billion yuan, which incited private capitals of 1.76billion yuan, to realize a total afforestation area of 339,000 acres, accountingfor 185% of the mission this year. 

Jingzhou government also demanded scientificafforestation to improve survival rate and artistic quality, started theappointment of technicians to organize forestry experts to compile the Technical Manual on Afforestation fortree-planting guidance (Where the trees should be planted, how should the treesbe planted and how to maintain them) in the rural and urban areas. For example,the side facing water should be strengthened with ecological management andplantation of pro-water trees such as Zhongshan fir, cedar, weeping willow andpoplar; the backwater side should adapt to local conditions to plant ecologicallandscape trees to upgrade from greening to beautification;plant large-scale fast-growing and high-yield mixed treesbetween the embankment and the main dike to create an ecological effect ofrational mixture of multiple trees at various levels. At present, on both sidesof the Yangtze River in Jingzhou, a forest ecological corridor has beeninitially established to realize the goal of “clean water, smooth river, greenbanks and beautiful scenery” and strive to create a new picture roll of “beautifulsection of the Yangtze River in Jingzhou”.
