|Mulberry Trees: Building Green||Mulberry Trees: Environmental Governance|
|Silkworms only feed on mulberry leaves and spin cocoons in a relatively clean environment. Large-scale mulberry plantations not only change the soil environment but also improve comprehensive environmental indicators such as water quality and air in the region.
Mulberry trees are efficient absorbers of carbon dioxide. Through photosynthesis, they transfer greenhouse gases from the atmosphere to a stable "carbon sequestration" state, storing carbon elements in the soil or within their own plant bodies. This natural process helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
|Mulberry trees play a crucial role in environmental governance. Their roots are extensively developed, with vertical distribution reaching over 4 meters and horizontal distribution covering an area of up to 7 square meters. The underground network of horizontal and vertical roots forms a water-absorbing and storing system, facilitating their nutrient and water absorption. In the past decade, mulberry trees have significantly contributed to various aspects such as sand control, rocky desertification control, soil and water conservation, saline and alkaline land reclamation, and converting cultivated land back into forested areas as an ecological forest species.|
CATHAYA Group has two major mulberry tree and silkworm breeding bases located in Banqiao Town, Longyang District, Baoshan City, Yunnan Province, and Zhouwangmiao Town, Haining City, Zhejiang Province. These two bases are the only two strong towns in the sericulture industry on the list of the National Ministry of Agriculture's Agricultural Industry Strong Towns.
