and semi-shifting sandy land. Taking local climate and hydrologic conditions into consideration, we chose Elms, Maples, Poplars and Caragana microphylla Lam as the main tree species to plant. All the planting work is completed. To ensure afforestation quality, MTP team will increase the survival rates through follow-up measures such as nurturing, watering etc.

During April andMay, the rainfall was not sufficient, and windy and sandy weather happened a lot. The percentage of the sprouted maples was low, while the percentage of sprouted poplars was high. In late May, there were several raining days, the sprouting of the saplings was improving. The survival rate of elm and maple saplings were estimated to be around 60%, and the survival rate of the poplars was estimated to be around 80%.

All the planting work is completed. The trees in the southern areas were growing slowly. Despite of the sandy soil, the trees were sprouted very well in the northern areas. MTP team will continue to visit the forest sites and take follow-up measures.
