– Opening a New Trade and Manufacture Era of China Importing

Radiate Pines



(attention: China importing quantity of radiate ping logs from from New Zealand and

Australia in 2009 have been corrected.)

    The year of 2009 is significant and glorious to Chinese timber industry. It

was in 2009 that Chinese timber industry closely adhered to the national policy

guidance of China and the annual theme of “Crisis, Confidence and Action”

determined by 2009 Annual Conference of Chinese Timber Industry, bravely

facing the economic challenges, overcoming the rare crisis and striding

forward to recovery 2010. It was in 2009 that China reached a peak of

importing radiate pine logs and sawntimbers from New Zealand and Australia

in history, which was also the biggest and greatest for Chinese imported timber

trade in 2009 and which was the most impressive annual mark stone to the

Chinese timber industry.The statistics of China Customs show that China

imported 4.83 million cubic meters of radiate ping logs in 2009, increasing by

2.75 million cubic meters over the same period in 2008, an increase of 132%,

of which there were 4.11 million cubic meters of radiate pine logs imported

from New Zealand, increasing by 2.34 million cubic meters, an increase of

132% and creating historical new high in import volume. 720,000 cubic meters
were imported from Australia, increasing 410,000 cubic meters over the same

period in 2008, an increase of 132%, while imported Russian logs as softwood

reduced 3.85 million cubic meters over the same period in 2008, falling by 21%.

Moreover, the statistics of China Customs and economic construction prove

the timber characteristics of this year - radiate pine was excellent in Chinese

trade, production and application field, and Sichuan’s earthquake relief to

rebuild their homes, and Chinese manufacturing and processing enterprises

made great contributions to promote its wide use in China. The application of

radiate pines in China has been beyond a popularizing stage, and they have

been widely used in the fields of construction, high speed rail, wood-based

panels, furniture, floor and packaging. Lanshan Port and Linyi of Shandong

Province, Shanghai Port, Changshu Port and its surrounding areas,

Zhangzhou Port of Fujian Province have become important trade and

production hot spots importing and using radiate pines in China. Radiate pines

have been used in the north and west China, partly replacing Russian timbers.

The year of 2009 opens a new trade and manufacture era of China importing

radiate pines.

In future, for quite a long time, the forest resources will increase so slowly that

there will be serious conflicts in forest resources. In addition, the main

producers of timber have stronger and stronger voices and actions to prohibit

and restrict the export of natural and secondary forest logs. To import and use

the legally certified logs,lumber and wood products has been an international

consensus, seriously challenging the fact that China has to import a large

number of logs to satisfy the national economy and people’s need, while China

has to import lots of plantation forest resources from New Zealand, “being
renewable and sustainable”, half of which has been certified by FSC. This is

the most realistic and urgent choice for China to comply with the international

green purchasing tendency.

In order to promote the timber trade of China, New Zealand and Australia to develop

healthily, stably and sustainably, China will import a large number of plantation forest

resources from New Zealand and Australia, which will push the radiate pines widely

recognized and accepted by the current Chinese market to the high-grade green fields in

manufacturing. The great era of exchange, trade investment and cooperation in timber

and wood products will be expected by wood industries of China, New Zealand and

Australia, especially when the Free Trade Agreement between the Government of the

People’s Republic of China and the Government New Zealand (this is the first

comprehensive free trade agreement that China signed with other countries and the first

free trade agreement that China reached with the developed country) is signed and

implemented and when the Free Trade Agreement between the Government of the

People’s Republic of China and the Government of Australia will be signed in the near

future.
