Planting of pines finished in success!

百万植树计划完成樟子松种植工作

This year, MTP is going to try a new tree species: Pinus sylvestnis var. mongolica Litv. These pines are mainly distributed in Heilongjiang, Jiling, Liaoning, Gansu and Inner Mongolia, and are one of the best tree species for reforestation in northern China. These pines stay alive very long, usually 150-200 years old. They can stand with dry, could and windy environment. The ecological and economical outcome of these pines are pretty nice.

今年百万植树计划尝试种植一个全新的树种:樟子松。樟子松主要分布在黑龙江,吉林,辽宁,甘肃,内蒙古等省份,是我国三北地区主要优良造林树种之一,寿命长(一般年龄达 150-200年),具有耐旱、耐寒、抗风等特性,和较高的生态和经济效益。

According to schedule, the 510 Mu (34 hectare) pine site for this year is located north of Ha Hai Go village, Liu Jia Zi town, Kulun Qi, Inner Mongolia. All the planting work should be finished before the July rain season ends. During 1 July to 4 July, 30 volunteers from Standard Chartered Bank visited Kulun Qi and took part in the pine tree planting work. Despite the hot weather, these bankers who used to sit in offices worked really hard with local farmers. Within the planting of one day and a half, this energetic team planted over 2,400 pines in total! That is a very impressive achievement. By 20 July, all the 68,000 pines within schedule have been successfully planted into the land, making the total number of trees planted in the Million Tree Project reaches over 600,000!

按照计划,今年共510亩的樟子松林地位于内蒙古通辽市库伦旗六家子镇哈海沟村北部,所有种植工作应在7月雨季结束前结束。7月1日至4日,来自渣打银行的30名志愿者来到了夏季的库伦旗,亲自参与了樟子松的种植工作。这些常年坐在办公室的银行从业人员无畏于炎炎烈日,与农民并肩协作,挥汗如雨,在1.5天的种植过程中,共种下了约2,400棵松树苗!截止至7月20日,所有计划内的68,000棵樟子松种植工作已经顺利完成!这使得项目种植的树木总数超过了60万。
