People living in Guangdong have volunteered over 1.1 billion times to participate in different tree-planting campaigns during the period.

In December 1981, the fourth session of the fifth National People's Congress adopted the resolution on unfolding a nationwide tree-planting drive. Since then, the activity has flourished in China.

Through concerted efforts, the forest coverage rate in Guangdong has increased from 30 percent in the 1980s to the current 58.66 percent, with the forest area up from 4.6 million hectares to 10.5 million hectares, said data from the provincial greening authorities.
