Some netizens reported that No. 277, Ant Forest, located in Alxa Left Banner, Inner Mongolia, is suspected of not planting Haloxylon ammodendron. Today, Ant Forest staff rushed to the site to check the video. The video showed that there are obvious traces of Haloxylon ammodendron planting in the desert, and the tree pits are evenly distributed in a 3X5 meter grid. Due to the dry climate, the Haloxylon ammodendron in the planting pit is relatively short, but it still survives tenaciously. There is no “no afforestation” reported by netizens.

In response to Sina Technology, the Ant Group stated: We will conduct another verification and audit on the plots that have been planted and accepted by the cooperative foundations. Last year, a number of institutions, including the Northwest Survey, Planning and Design Institute of the State Forestry and Grassland Administration, and the East China Survey, Planning and Design Institute of the State Forestry and Grassland Administration, were entrusted to complete the corresponding work. The verification and audit in the fall of 2021 is about to begin, and it is planned to invite netizens to participate. The relevant registration will be launched in the near future. Netizens are invited to guard the ant forest together.
According to the No. 277 forest ranger, due to the low rainfall in the Alxa area, according to the ecological carrying capacity and the requirements of scientific greening, the density of the Haloxylon ammodendron planting plan is relatively sparse, and the planting quantity per mu is about 45 trees. At the same time, Haloxylon ammodendron is a low shrub suitable for desertification areas. It is relatively short above the surface, but has deep roots and mainly depends on the roots to fix sand. In a drought year, Haloxylon ammodendron will become shorter to reduce water loss. This is also the ability of Haloxylon ammodendron to cope with drought.
According to data, Ant Forest No. 277 is an ecological project donated by the Ant Group and planted and maintained by the China Green Foundation in the spring of 2019. According to the inspection and acceptance report issued by a third-party agency in December 2019, the 150,000 stalks of Haloxylon ammodendron in the No. 277 forest have been planted in the spring of 2019.
