ZHANGJIAKOU, Hebei Province, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Walking under the shade of the trees, Wang Wenhua remembers the days when the barren mountains were swept by sandstorms.

"After we had the forest planted, gone were the sandstorm and flash floods," said the 59-year-old woman. "Villagers saw the improvement and their minds changed as well."

Wang lives in the Zhenzigou village of Guyuan county, Zhangjiakou in northern China's Hebei Province, believed to be a "protective screen" for the capital Beijing.
