Liv­ing Mon­u­ment

Korea (English) - - CONTENTS - Ar­ti­cle & Photo: Jin Ju Song

There is a 200-year-old pagoda tree, Sophora japon­ica, which has rooted deeply at the Chongnyu Cliff, one of scenic places in Mo­ran Hill.

It is 10 me­tres high and wedge-shaped dif­fi­cult to dis­tin­guish root from trunk.

It has taken its root in a lit­tle hol­lowed place on the cliff and grown some five me­tres high, spread­ing into sev­eral branches there.

Its fan-shaped crown adds beauty to the land­scape of the cliff with its pe­cu­liar type.

As it has or­na­men­tal and aca­demic val­ues, the tree is un­der preser­va­tion as a liv­ing mon­u­ment of the coun­try.
