The tiny forests designed by feng shui | BBC Travel

The feng shui forest, or fengshuilin, is situated in the ancient Hakka village of Guizhuping where it is protected and preserved for around 400 years. The heritage trees are believed to bring prosperity and good health to the Han people. They consider these forests to be sacred, so they give respect by putting incense-decorated shrines dedicated to the Earth gods for protecting them from natural disasters or diseases. Scientists believe that fengshuilin could provide a blueprint for sustainable planting for China’s future ecological efforts to be carbon neutral by 2060.
