With these large roots, each spruce is like a water pump, which can store water for 2.5 tons. Picea schrenkiana evaporated water rate compared with the same latitude and the same superficial ocean, the evaporated rate is more than 50%. With vapour rise change into rain, therefore, the vast snow ridge spruce growing region is very precious water conservation area.
