2017 MTP Forest Investigation Report|2017年内蒙古林地调查概况

· 博客 Blog


Till now, MTP has successfully planted 2,134,092 trees on 34 forest plots, covering an area of 28,678.15 Mu (nearly 19.12 km2) in Inner Mongolia.


The area of forests increased dramatically in 2016 due to the cooperation with Ganqika Forestry Bureau, who helped us with finding plenty of suitable land to plant trees to fight desertification, to be specific, about 4,383 Mu(292.2 Ha) in 2016, and 2,150 Mu(143.3 Ha) in 2017. More details could be seen in the graph below. (1 Ha=15 Mu)

We’ve planted eight different species in MTP forests, including one to two years old hybrid poplar, 3-year-old pine (container seedlings), yellow horn, maple (Acer Mono), one-year Caragana Microphylla (container seedlings), 2-year-old willow and elm, and 2-year-old Phellodendron amurense.


1,296,708 hybrid poplars (the windbreak of 30,000 poplars has been deducted), 663,459 pines, 72,483 yellow horns, 59,617 maple(Acer Mono), 11,825 willows and elms. (Please note that the survival rate of Caragana Microphylla is too low to count, and as the number of Phellodendron amurense is minor we didn’t count it either.) The proportion of different species is shown in the graph below:

The 2017 investigation sampled 7,145 trees in 237 random spots on 29 forest plots and took 27 days from September to October to complete.The overall survival rate of all MTP forests is 66.12%. The graph below shows the survival rates of the planting sites that we have investigated over the last 6 years.
