Note: Sanbei shelter-forest（三北防护林）is known as
China’s “Great Green Wall”. It is a “Great Green Wall”of tress,
millions of trees. China has built a new Great Green Wall across
the northern part, including Inner Mongdia, Shanxi, Hebei,
Beijing and Tianjin. The Great Green Wall also covers some of
the Northwest (Xinjiang, Qinghai, Gansu, Ningxia and Shanxi)
and the west part of the Northeast .(Liaoning, Jinlin and Hei
Longjiang) It includes(包括) 13 provinces, cities and
automomous region.(自治区) Its total area is 4,069,000 square
kilometers, which cover 42.4% of the land of China. The building
of the Great Green Wall will take 73 years.(1978—2050)

Wall is 7,000 kilometers , and between 400 and 1,700
kilometers . It will stop the wind blowing the earth away. It
will stop the from moving the rich in the south. If

The answers to the exercise
Forests help to stop droughts and floods, so
China has built a new Great Wall across the
northern part of the country . The Great Green
Wall is 7,000 kilometers long, and between 400
and 1,700 kilometers wide. It will stop the wind
from blowing the earth away. It will stop the sand
from moving towards the rich farmland in the
south. If more Great Green Walls are built, more
good land will be protected and then more crops
will be produced to feed more people.
VII、 The closing remarks(结束语)
It shows what has happened to the forests of the USA in the last
350 years. In 1620, about half the USA was covered by forests. In
1850, about a third was covered by forests. Today, the forests have
almost gone. A lot of good land has gone with them, leaving only
sand. Today, too many trees are still being cut down in the USA.
China mustn’t copy the USA’s example. We must plant more to
make our country greener, richer and more beautiful. Do remember:
The more, the better.
