Calling for long-term plantation projects, forest plantations play a vital role in the national wood processing industry, and pine plants (Hawthorn) are also commercialized. Due to the tremendous pressure on manufacturers to obtain raw materials, pine trees began to be harvested in just 5-7 years, which has attracted attention because early harvesting will reduce the economic potential of plantations. In order to solve the Nyssaceae harvest problem, Ha Cong Tuan, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, signed a decision (No. 2962) to regulate the harvesting regulations for pine crops. The new regulations are seen as an indication of the government's determination to improve the current barriers to the national wood processing industry and to promote sustainable harvesting and export of certified wood products. According to the Forestry Bureau, in the first six months of 2019, the export value of wood products was close to 7 billion US dollars.
