400 kilometers away from Urumqi, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, just 30 kilometers north of Mingsha Mountain in Changji prefecture, lies the Changji Populus euphratica forest. The ancient tree has a history of 65 million years. The tree requires a robust resistance to drought, heavy winds, sand, and saline-alkali soil to stay alive in the harsh desert.
