Greenpeace Beijing office and photography association "Wild China" ventured deep into the virgin forests of southwestern China, an area with the richest biodiversity in the whole country, on a two-year mission to find, record, and protect the region's iconic giant Himalayan Hemlocks. Finally, 3,200 meters up in the Zhiben Mountains, in the basins of the Min and Nu rivers, our botanists and climbers discovered a natural monument: a 1,100-year-old Himalayan Hemlock, the oldest of its kind.
It took ten months of preparation for Greenpeace China and Wild China to plan a scientific expedition that developed sustainable climbing methods and technology to find and photograph, for the first time, this ancient tree.

2017至2019年间,绿色和平北京办公室和自然影像机构野性中国共同携手,深入中国生物多样性最丰富的西南地区原始森林,努力寻找、记录、保护最具有代表性的天然巨树。终于,在澜沧江和怒江流域的分水岭、海拔3200米志奔山上,植物学家和攀登高手们,发现了大自然最美丽的丰碑——树高34米、树龄1100岁的世界最古老云南铁杉树。

绿色和平与野性中国组成的调研小组经过10个月的筹备工作,制定了科学、可持续的绳索攀爬方案,克服了多个高空攀爬技术难点,终于拍摄到中国大陆首张巨型古树的等身肖像照。
