Throughout his life, Zhang Yingshan, 65, has worked with trees for over 45 years. Following the step of his father, Zhang became a forestry worker at the Wumahe forestry bureau in 1975. Nine years later, he opened the bureaus first family-run forest farm, planting 30 hectares of trees each year. From 1981 to 2011, Zhang and his wife Yan Yuping planted around a million trees on the ridge of the Lesser Hinggan Mountains. After retiring at the age of 55, he keeps inspecting trees and cutting down weeds. "When I go into those forests and see how fast they grow, Im really pleased," Zhang said. "Those trees are like my own children." The couple spends most of the time in a cottage deep inside the mountains, as it is convenient to plant and tend trees. "I will devote all of my efforts to the trees," Zhang said. (Xinhua/Xie Jianfei)
