Dubbed as one of the earth’s few “living fossils”, the diversifolious poplar tree is a hero worshipped by the Mongolians, with the beautiful, moving saying; “…..the poplar trees can live for 1,000 years and after they die, they will stand for another thousand years before falling; yet it takes another thousand years for their trunk to decompose…..”
