 Description The oriental arborvitae grows in China and Korea.

In Korea, it grows at Danyang, Dalseong, Andong and Yeongyang.

These trees usually take its roots on the cliff and form a forest.

The Korean name of 'cheukbaek' means that the branches of this tree grow vertically.

This tree is often planted around houses and towns in order to arrange the surroundings beautifully.About 100 oriental arbor-vitaes grow on the hill of the natural habitat in Dalseong.

The height of these trees is 5 ~ 7 meters.

Pine trees and zelkova trees are growing in this habitat.

The nearby forest was devastated by the people who lumbered trees at random.

But the oriental arborvitae forest has been well preserved because these trees grow at the cracks of rocks on the cliff.The oriental arborvitae forest has been interested in, because this tree is the Natural Monument No.1.

Though oriental arborvitae is generally thought to grow only in China, it can also be found growing throughout Korea.

This tree has been designated and conserved as a natural monument because of its great value for a research of the geographical distribution of plants.
