Pagoda Tree at Chongnyu Cliff
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.
