A few days ago, Linduo Forest Farm in Tian'e County contracted out 675 acres of moso bamboo thinning and sales rights to Nawai sub-moso bamboo base in Nabi sub-field and sold them to foreign merchants through public bidding sales. The income was 142,100 yuan, and the net profit of moso bamboo thinning was 200 yuan. The "first bucket of gold" for the development of the moso bamboo industry has greatly enhanced the confidence of forestry cadres and staff in developing moso bamboo.
In August of this year, Tian'e County Linduo Forest Farm introduced the bidding and sales model of timber to thin bamboo forests and sales, and issued bidding sales announcements to the region and outside, attracting customers from Yunnan, Guilin and other places to bid. Among them, the owner Huang, a business owner from Ziyuan County, Guilin City, obtained the thinning rights of 675 acres of moso bamboo in Nawai Moso base through bidding.
At present, the owner has harvested moso bamboo in accordance with the contract and set up a simple processing plant near the migrant settlement to carry out the initial processing of the moso bamboo that is harvested, with a daily processing capacity of 20 tons of moso bamboo. According to Mr. Huang, these primordial bamboo products will be transported to bamboo processing plants in other places for further processing, and made into products such as bamboo mats, bamboo pillows, bamboo plywood, and bamboo carbon.
According to the person in charge of Linduo Forest Farm, this year, through auction, the field contracted 3176 acres of moso bamboo (including mixed forests) for thinning and sales rights to foreign merchants, directly benefiting 268,000 yuan.
According to the contract, thinning will cut down some bamboo trees over 3 years old and follow the principle of "cutting old and leaving young, cutting dense and thin, cutting weak and strong, and cutting small and big". After thinning, more than 180 bamboo will be retained per mu .
It is reported that Tian'e County started planting moso bamboo in 1998. Due to the small scale of planting and the absence of moso bamboo processing plants, the economic benefits of moso bamboo have not been shown.
However, Tian'e County's support for the moso bamboo industry has not diminished. For 15 years, the county's successor team has paid close attention to moso bamboo production, and the annual afforestation area has increased at a rate of nearly 10,000 acres. At present, the total moso bamboo plantation area in the county has reached 124,000 acres. Among them, more than 40,000 acres can enter the phase of thinning bamboo, and each forest farm and some farmers have begun to benefit from thinning bamboo.
