One tree at a time 一步一脚印
内蒙古通辽市 Tongliao, Inner Mongolia
This is our first planting site, started in 2007 to combat the rapidly expanding desertification in Inner Mongolia. We plant tree species tailored to the local soil conditions, such as hybrid poplar (Populus simonii) and the Mongolian Scots pine (Pinus sylvestnis var. mongolica Litv.) Learn More
宁夏灵武市 Lingwu, Ningxia
Started in 2015 at the Baijitan Nature Reserve, this planting site aims to prevent the expansion of the Maowusu Sandy Land through planting shrubs. We tailor our afforestation efforts specifically to the soil and climate conditions at Lingwu, using shrubs such as Caragana Korshinskii, Hedysarum scoparium, Calligonum arborescens, and Artemisia ordosica, as well as the construction of massive straw grids.

广西靖西市 Jingxi, Guangxi
In 2021, MTP started coorperating with Guangxi Bangliang Gibbon National Nature Reserve to restore and expand the current Cao Vit Gibbon Karst forest habitat, providing the gibbons with trees as food, shelter, and corridors for locomotion, and hopefully one day, allowing CVG to increase the area of their home ranges in order to better repopulate and survive.

树种种类 Type of Trees
因地制宜 Plant the proper trees
杂交杨树 Hybrid Poplars
Particularly effective at sequestering carbon and do not require large amounts of water.
樟子松 Scotch Pines
Pinus sylvestnis var. mongolica Litv.
Suitable for fighting desertification in nearby areas. Live very long and ever-green.
Yellowhorn seeds contain twice the amount of oil as soybeans, and can be used for both cooking and industrial purposes. This species has a long history of successful growth in the region and will return both economic and ecological benefits.
Caragana microphylla Lam
Caragana is a typical local shrub and very important to the ecosystem in the arid and semi-arid region, also an excellent balance between biological restoration and economic development.
Artemisia ordosica has good sand blocking effect because its stems logarithmically clustered. It is an excellent sand fixation plant.
Calligonum arborescens Litv.
Calligonum is the pioneer tree species for sand fixation. It basically has no leaves, photosynthetic function transferred to the new branches, the roots are also developed.
Caragana Korshinskii Kom
Caragana Korshinskii Kom is a kind of plants which can fix sand efficiently and green Barren hills, and its roots grow with nodules which have fertilizer effect. Its twigs, leaves also contain nitrogen, and it is a good raw material for retting green manure.
Hedysarum scoparium has nodules, and it can fix the air nitrogen to supply their own needs. Thus, it can grow vigorously in the barren sand, and it also has a good soil improvement effect.
Ficus concinna Miq.
Ficus concinna Miq. has strong roots. After being planted, the trees have a very good chance of surviving. The trees could turn into forests in the foreseeable future.
Choerospondias axillaris (Roxb.) B. L. Burtt & A. W. Hill
作为优秀的先锋树种，南酸枣生长速度快，且极受长臂猿喜爱Choerospondias axillaris grow fast as a typical pioneering tree. They are also the one of the most favored tree species for the gibbons to eat and live on.
