The ariel photosshow complete and clear tree lines of pines and poplars, so the trees have been preserved very well.

lines showed clear in most areas. A few areas had missing spots, where maples
were planted to replenish.

The preservationof pines was good, with the moderate growth speed of about 10 cm. The other planted species, maples were not very well preserved. Most of the maples had grown
leaves, but some were covered by dry grass. These needed further care.
The caragana enteredthe flower season, and were growing strong.

The replated tree species were mostly made up of elms. Some maples were also replanted. Most of the replanted saplings survived. It was esitimated that 80% of them were sprouting and growing leaves. The replanting work was of high qulity. Further observation is needed, especially when it comes to how grazing will affect the growth of the saplings.
