 Description The Oriental Arborvitae grows in China and Korea.

In Korea, it grows in the regions of Danyang, Dalseong, Andong and Yeongyang.

These trees usually take root along the cliffs 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 build beautiful landscapes.

About 100 oriental arborvitae trees grow in Do-dong.

The height of these trees is typically 5-7 meters.

Pine trees and zelkova trees also grow in this habitat.

While the nearby forest was devastated by spontaneous lumbering activities, the forest of oriental arborvitae has been well preserved because these trees grow at the cracks of the rocks along the cliffs.

There has been great interest in the forest of oriental arborvitae because the tree species has been designated as Natural Monument No.

1.

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

This tree is designated and conserved as a natural monument.
