The Chinese government invested 35.1 billion yuan (about US$4.3 billion) in the forestation projects in 2004, the bulletin said.


A total of 25.32 million hectares of trees have been added thanks to the nationwide projects launched in 1998, which have cost 126.4 billion yuan (about US$15.6 billion), it said.
