Flowers and trees are planted in its 14 villages, 12 of which are professional. With more than 8,000 major planters and more than 2,000 species of flowers and trees, the town has become the largest flower planting base in Jiangsu Province. In 1999, Yanxia Village was honored as “National Top Thousand Green Village” by Ministry of Agriculture and National Afforestation Environmental Protection Commission; in May 2000, Yanji Town was named as “National Hometown of Flowers and Trees” by the State Forestry Administration and China Flower Association.
