Recently, we’re approved by the State Forestry and Grassland Administration to export 20,000 cycads to Turkey. The plants have been cultivated and are listed on Appendix I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). The cycad plants will be shipped to Turkey in the next few days for various purposes such as garden decoration, landscaping projects and academic research projects.

cycas revoluta

Cycad revoluta is a cycad plant native to Japan, but has been introduced to countries around the world for its ornamental value. The plant is sought after for its attractive foliage and ease of maintenance, making it popular in both commercial and private landscaping.

However, due to habitat loss and over-harvesting, cycads are an endangered species and their trade is regulated under CITES Appendix I. The artificial cultivation of endangered plants is seen as a way to protect and preserve these species, and the export of cycad plants by the State Forestry and Grassland Administration is a recognition of the effectiveness of this method.

The decision by the State Forestry and Grassland Administration to approve the export of these plants highlights the growing importance of cultivation in conserving endangered plant species, it is an important step forward for us. We have been at the forefront of artificial cultivation of endangered plants, and has become a leading enterprise in the international trade of ornamental plants. We have a strong commitment to sustainability and all of its plants are grown using environmentally friendly methods. We’ll continue to play the role of sustainable practices in international trade in ornamental plants.
