IV.Repay the Society, Boom Local Economy
The development of the company and the continuous expansion of the scale also contribute to the development of the local forestry industry. The company uses high density fiberboard and abundant masson pine path intermediate cutting wood as main raw materials. To guarantee the raw material supply and protect environment, we adopt the mode of “company + base + farmer + processing center” and build forest supply bases in many places such as Luoyang, Xiahong, Shantouji, Siqian by cooperating with farmers. The forest supply bases, with a total area of 13,000 mu and an earlier-stage raising fund of 1.5 million yuan invested by the company, is guided by the company technologically and planted by farmers and the produced raw woods are purchased by the company according to the protective price. Therefore, the raw material supply of the company is guaranteed, the profits of the farmers are greatly improved and local environment get well protected . The county, located in mountainous area, is rich in pine wood resources; however, due to backwards transportation and lack of information, farmers mainly depended on selling raw woods to earn a limited amount of money before the development of wood product industry. Based on the wood supply bases, farmers ran semi-finished product processing center spontaneously to process the raw woods into semi-finished products with greatly increased additional value. Under the technical guidance of the company, more than 20 semi-finished processing centers (each center has 10 to 15 people) are set up successively, providing jobs for more than 1,500 people with a per capita income of 5,000 yuan per year and benefiting more than 1,300 peasant households equally 5,000 people. Compared with selling raw woods, this mode increases the per capita income of farmers by 3,000 to 10,000 yuan. In 2008, the procurement expenditure of agriculture products reached 25 million yuan, which strongly pushes forward the development of the local forestry industry and effectively promotes agriculture efficiency and farmer income. Thus, the company has won the praise and trusts of farmers and the mode has been a good way to help farmers get rid of poverty and become better off. At the same time, the forestry industry of the county is promoted and the double-harvest of social benefit and economic benefit is achieved.
