The Chinese juniper ranges from the south of the middle Korea to Ulleungdo Island and Japan.
This tree is also called "Sangnamu" and "a Japanese cypress".
This tree is used for burning incense because it has a strong fragrance, and is planted of a garden tree and a park tree.The natural growing site of the Chinese juniper in Daepunggam is located in northwestern Ulleungdo Island.
In Ulleungdo Island, originally, many Chinese junipers had grown, but their number goes down because people cut trees at random.
Existing trees are growing near a cliff where people can't get close easily and its representative region can be Daepunggam and Tonggumi.The Chinese juniper in this region could not grow taller because it is growing on the coastal cliffs which blow agale.
As here used to be Ulleung-gun County Office, management and observation of the Chinese junipers did well and thier preservation could do well.The natural growing site of the Chinese juniper in Daepunggam is designated and is conserved as Natural Monument because it is an important material that is related to dietary living environment and that is showing locational limits of the Chinese juniper's growing.
