(ECNS) -- Since July 7, the end of the "plum rain" season, central China's Hubei province has been experiencing high temperatures and little rain.

The leaves of a century-old tree on top of the Qingyun Pagoda of Anguo Temple in Huanggang city, were wilted by the sun. Firefighters sprinkled water on the wilted leaves and tried to rescue the tree.

Finally, the ancient tree rejuvenated back to a cloud of green. The tree on top of the pagoda was planted in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and is now more than three meters high, with a trunk diameter of about 30 centimeters.

It is said that the tree's seed rose with the wind and fell into the tower and set its roots, surviving for more than 100 years.
