  We need to pay attention to pests and diseases in summer, and mainly pay attention to fire prevention in winter.

  [Explanation] During the patrol with Sanjayga, the reporter found that the management and protection work not only requires walking at least four hours in the forest farm at an altitude of 3,000 meters, but also checking the growth of vegetation in the forest farm, whether there is illegal use of fire in the wild, and publicity instructions. Whether the facilities such as card auctions are complete, whether livestock have entered the managed forest land, etc., will then be fully recorded in the work manual and fed back to more professional colleagues for data analysis.

  The seeds that fell from the big trees grow on the ground, and the cattle and sheep can germinate naturally without entering. There are many small saplings, which are better than artificial afforestation.

  [Commentary] Sanjayga told reporters that because he couldn't ride a motorcycle, he could only walk from the management station to the forest farm in the early years, and he left before dawn in the morning to complete the day's patrol mission.

Now, more and more people join the forest and grass management team, and every patrol can be with colleagues who can ride motorcycles, which is much more convenient than before.

  [Commentary] As the Spring Festival is approaching, the weather is dry, which is a critical period for forest protection and fire prevention. The guards will be stationed in the station every day, and the number of patrols will increase accordingly. Sanjayjia recalled the Spring Festival a few years ago. When he observed the forest farm with binoculars , he found that there was thick smoke coming from the distance, and he couldn't drive a motorcycle alone, so he took a fire extinguisher and ran to the mountain on foot. He found that the sparks splashed from the nearby villagers when they were simmering mulberry ignited the weeds. Fortunately, it was extinguished in time. The wooded areas in the rear are not endangered.

  This is the tradition of our Tibetans - simmering mulberry, during the Spring Festival, we have to watch for six days and six nights, and wait until all the burning materials of the butter lamp are burnt and the fire is extinguished before we leave.

  [Commentary] Sanjayga said that it takes nearly 10 kilometers to walk to complete a patrol. I don't know how many pairs of shoes have been broken in the past 13 years. At first, it was just to have a job, but watching the little saplings gradually grow up, The barren hillside turned green, not only did I realize the value of my life here, but I also had deep feelings for this forest farm.
