The forest locates at Zhaogen Gacha (Village), Keerqinhou Qi. The overall survival rates are keeping declining during the recent four years. As shown in the chart above, the survival rate is 53.75% in 2019 investigation, and the average height is apparently growing.
It’s found that the growth of trees is not even. The tree lines can be seen very clearly. Part of the trees are tall, but many of them are rather small in height.
Breaking branches and gnawing traces on trunks are very commonly seen. Wild bushes grow a lot on the ground, covering the barren sandy land. The forest has been replanted, mainly in the sandy land on edge of the forest site, not in the area where survival rate is low. So it couldn’t improve the overall survival rate.
