Nanchuan District: Two-color forest leaves singing autumn sound

Recently, in the Shanwangping Karst Ecological Park in Nanchuan, Chongqing, more than 20,000 mu(about 3,294.7 acres) of forests present a unique mountain landscape. The vehicle was driving on the forest road, and the cedar forest on one side was still turquoise, while the metasequoia forest on the other side gradually turned yellow and red. Shanwangping is a typical karst landform, and the rocky desertification is severe. In the early 1980s, the central committee of the communist of China(CPC) issued a call for "comprehensive ecological restoration," and Nanchuan District began to close the mountains and cultivate forests. Over the past 40 years, forest rangers have planted 8,000 mu(about 1,317.9 acres) of metasequoia and cedar with firm belief, creating a miracle of ecological management in Shanwangping.
