Working with Baijitan Tree Farm, we continued our desert control effort in 2017. The reforestation site is located at Daliumaozi sand area, Baijitan Nature Reserve, Lingwu, Ningxia. Over 200,000 shrubs have been planted, covering a total area of 66.7 hectares.
In year 2019, the total survival rate of Caragana Korshinskii Kom in forest 2017-NX is 37.75%. There will be replanting. The survival rate meets our expectation of planting shrub for desert control. As most of the Caragana Korshinskii Kom are in the first year of growth, they’re just sprouting. The average height of Caragana Korshinskii Kom is 27.38 cm, and the average radius is 9.33 cm.
