Loggers seek wealth from forest protection rather than destruction

Loggers in northeast China’s Hunchun now have new work after the commercial logging was banned there for forest protection.

They have turned to be strawberry farmers.

And the strawberries planted by them are said to be watered with diluted milk, which is believed to help with strawberry growth and give the berries a taste of milk.

With an investment of no more than 17,000 U.S. dollars, the 11 former loggers are expected to earn nearly 46,000 dollars this season from the sales of the milk strawberry.

As the public awareness of environment protection is increasing in China, more and more people have turned to seek wealth from forest protection rather than forest destruction.
