Irrational use of the hilly regions of South China includes high proportion of land under forestry of low timber productivity, continuing expansion of terracing for growing rice, monotonous species used in afforestation, and frequent changes in policy measures. Deforestation leads to serious soil erosion affecting 40 million hectares and annual loss of 2.4 billion tons of soil. Recommended rectifying measures include comprehensive planning for long term as well as short term projects. (TNC).
