Jinggu Dai and YiNationalities Autonomous County ForestryCorporation

Jinggu Dai and Yi Nationalities Autonomous County Forestry Corporation is situated in the south-western portion of the Simao District of Yunnan Province. The mild weather, plentiful rainfall, long daylight hours and other geographical features of the area make it very suitable for growing semitropical plants. In 1996, Jinggu County was nominated for comprehensive development and testing in the same year that the government canceled three other manufacturing plants and approved establishment of a forestry enterprise. The existing forest resources make Jinggu County an ideal place for the development of a forestry industry. The percentage of plant cover is 54.1 percent.
