 Expert on Online Hot Sales of Wild Hinggan Rhododendron in Daxingan Mountains: E-commerce should be restricted


Wild Rhododendron is Illegally Picked

Rhododendron belongs to small shrubs, most of which grow in the low position of forest clearance. Walking into the Gagdage area under the jurisdiction of the Greater Hinggan Mountains in Heilongjiang Province, reporters found that it was difficult to find a complete cluster of azaleas on the hillside. The larger branches of azaleas were mostly broken, and some had only a little root.

Volunteer: Hingan cuckoo is folded every year, big enough to be thick enough to be folded away. After folding, all the trunks died. It took many years for them to grow so thick.

Subsequently, the reporter came to the 18 forest farms in Tahe and Huma counties of Daxingan Mountains, which is the largest forest industry enterprise jurisdiction in Daxingan Mountains. The slogan in the forest area reads: Hingan azalea, ecological fundamentals, illegal mining and discovery must be investigated. Even so, in this forest area, there are still many traces of azaleas being picked.

Local people call Hingan cuckoo Dadaxiang. After several setbacks, reporters contacted a local big seller who only does the wholesale business of cuckoo. The shopkeeper said there was a large stock, up to 20,000 bales, about 800,000 branches.

Hanmou, a local businessman, is from Daxingan Mountains, which guarantees flowering. The withered branches that were received flowered in about seven days. A bundle of more than 20 yuan, the profit is still quite large. I have 20,000 bundles, which are more than 800,000 branches. I dont sell them by bundles.

The wholesale price of Rhododendron stems is only 8 yuan for a bundle of 40 branches. Businessmen can sell more than 20 yuan on the Internet. Cheap and windfall profits make businessmen have agents all over the country.

Reporters found that in Pingduo, Tianmao Taobao, Jingdong and other e-commerce platforms, there are more than 100 stores selling Rhododendron trunk branches. Shopkeepers clearly marked wild rhododendron, such as greetings from the Great Hinggan Mountains to attract customers, the highest turnover of more than 1000 copies.

Cutting down and destroying the ecological Rhododendron is not suitable for domestic cultivation.

However, experts point out that Hingan cuckoo blossoms early in the northeastern forest area. Its petals are thin and tender. In fact, it will roll up and fall easily if you dont pay any attention to it. Its flowering period is only a few days, and its indoor ornamentation is actually not high.

Professor Long Chunlin, School of Life and Environmental Sciences, Central University for Nationalities, who specializes in Rhododendron plant research, said that the unique toxicity of Rhododendron is not suitable for placing at home.

As the flagship species in the Great Hinggan Mountains, the first batch of Rhododendron blooms in spring, forming a very beautiful sea scene of rhododendron. Nowadays, in the face of such large-scale harvesting, Zhang Zhixiang, Dean of Nature Reserve College of Beijing Forestry University, said that it is shameful and condemnable for sellers to make unrestrained use of natural resources for nothing.

Experts pointed out that Northeast China belongs to the high latitude and cold region, the annual growth period is actually only three and a half months, and the growth and maturity of Rhododendron need several years, so a large number of mature branches will be cut off, which is devastating for species reproduction.

Legal Experts: Legislation should be adopted to restrict E-commerce

Rhododendron is beautiful, but this beauty only belongs to nature. Experts in the field of ecological law have suggested that the relevant departments should stop online sales in a timely manner.

Yang Zhaoxia, associate professor of law at Beijing Forestry University, said that Heilongjiangs forest management regulations stipulate that those who collect wild Hingan azaleas by cutting branches during the non-collection period should be confiscated and fined at least twice the market value and less than three times the market value. But in the face of the high profits of selling wild Hingan cuckoos, such punishment measures can hardly crack down on illegal logging and sales.

Yang Chaoxia pointed out that the Xingan cuckoo was only protected in the form of local regulations, which was somewhat out of line with the reality. In 2017, there were reports that Taobao sells wild Rhododendron branches indiscriminately. For this reason, Alibaba asked online sellers to stop selling related products in an all-round way, and said that once a violation was found, the platform would immediately take measures such as prohibition, penalty points, and even closure of stores. However, after one year, some people still openly sell the dried branches of Hingan Rhododendron on Taobao and other platforms. For this reason, in view of the Electronic Commerce Law, which was formally implemented this year, legal experts believe that relevant ecological protection clauses should be added to restrict the electronic commerce platform.

In addition, many wild plants are not listed in the national key plant protection list, but they are an important part of the ecosystem. Everyone should not only be a visitor to ecological civilization, but also a practitioner of ecological civilization and protect wildlife resources.
