Wang Guangming, a farmer in the Guzhuang community of Rugao, East China's Jiangsu province, earns about 1.5 million yuan ($212,000) to 2 million yuan a year growing bonsai trees.

"A bonsai pine tree that is about the height of an adult can sell for more than 100,000 yuan," said Wang, who lives in a villa with a garden full of the bonsai trees he grows. "Nearly 3,00 families in the community grow bonsai trees to make a living."
