China to plant more trees in 2009

In 2008, China's forest acreage increased 4.77 million hectares, Hui said Thursday at a work meeting attended by the country's central and local forestry administration heads.

China's top legislative body, the National People's Congress (NPC), passed a resolution in 1981 making it a duty of all citizens above the age of 11 to plant trees annually.

The tree-planting drive is part of a campaign to boost green coverage to 20 percent of the country by 2010.
