Bac Giang has also successfully reduced the area of forests damaged by fire with no major forest fire occurring so far.

The locality targets to expand its forest coverage to more than 37 percent through the planting of 5,000ha of forest in a bid to help protect the environment, ease natural disasters, protect bio-diversity of forests while raising income for local people and reducing poverty rate from forestry.

The province has also issued a detailed plan on the protection, development and use of the existing forests and land designated for forestry.
