China Meranti-The Giant of Plants

In the tropical rainforests in Xishuangbanna grows the tallest arbor plant in our country-China Meranti, which is the first-class state-protection plant.

The China Meranti grows in river valley at an elevation between 350 and 1,100 meters or in the tropical rainforests at the damp foot of mountains. The average height of the tree is above 60 meters with the tallest of 80 meters. It is, therefore, the "giant" of the forest just like a crane standing among chickens.
