Zou Lianying walks on a path in Shuibian Township of Xiajiang County, east China's Jiangxi Province, May 8, 2012. The 83-year-old Zou Lianying has been planting trees for almost 20 years. In her opinion, tree planting will improve environmental quality and bring offspring benefits. At the age of 64, Zou sold livestock of her family and borrowed money from relatives and friends to open the first family forest farm in Huzhou Village of Shuibian Township. By far, the family forest farm founded by the aged woman has trees covering 6,500 mu (about 433 hectares) of land. (Xinhua/Zhou Ke)
