China's output value of forestry rose 27 percent last year to more than 2 trillion yuan (302 billion U.S. dollars), a senior forestry official said Wednesday.

China produced the most rosin, fabricated boards, bamboo and rattan wood furniture, and timber floor products of any country in 2010, said Jia Zhibang, the head of China's State Forestry Administration (SFA).

Jia said China aims to produce 2.4 trillion yuan of forestry products in 2011.

The SFA will reform some state-owned tree farms this year to boost forestry product output, Jia said without providing details.

At the end of 2010, there were 4,507 state-owned tree farms with a total area of 930 million mu (62 million hectares) nationwide.

Jia made the remarks at a two-day conference attended by forestry-relevant officials, entrepreneurs and experts.

China intends to increase its forest coverage rate to 21.66 percent by the end of 2015.

China's forest coverage had reached 20.36 percent, or 195 million hectares, at the end of 2008.

During 2004 and 2008, the SFA conducted its seventh survey of China's forestry resources, mobilizing more than 20,000 scientists and forestry workers.

In China, forest are defined as woods covering an area of more than 1 mu with a crown density -- the amount of sunlight blocked by plant material -- at or above 20 percent, according to the SFA.
