 Description The Lacebark pine is called the "white pine" or the "white bone pine" because the bark of this tree turns white.

This tree was introduced from China by missionaries during the Joseon Dynasty.

The Lacebark Pine of Jogyesa Temple is presumed to be 500 years old.

The height is about 14 m and its girth is about 1.85 m.

This Lacebark pine tree sits besides the main hall of the Jogyesa Temple, and its branch towards the main hall is only partially alive.

One side of this tree is adjacent to the passage, while the other side sits next to the building.

Therefore, because the area is inadequate for the tree to grow, the Lacebark pine is not preserved well.

Since the Lacebark pine is a rare tree species and is valuable in biology, it is designated and protected as a Natural Monument.
