The small patches of relict Chinese pine forests in the Ortindag Sand Land in North China are at their northern distribution limits. Herein we summarized achievements of the recent study of cambial activity as well as tree growth and regeneration dynamics of Chinese pine populations, climate reconstructions from tree rings up to ecosystem dynamics in the Ortindag Sand Land and their implications for ecosystem management.
