 Description The Chinese junipers grow throughout the middle-southern regions of Korea to Ulleungdo Island and Japan.

This tree, called "Sangnamu" in Korea, is used for burning incense because of its strong fragrance, and is planted in gardens and parks.

The Natural Habitat of Chinese juniper in Daepunggam is located in northwestern Ulleungdo Island.

In Ulleungdo Island the number of Chinese juniper trees had grown, but their number has recently been decreasing because of lumbering activities.

Existing trees grow near a cliff where people can't get close to them easily.

The Chinese junipers in this region are not able to grow taller because of their growth along the coastal cliffs.

The natural habitat of the Chinese juniper in Daepunggam is designated and conserved as a Natural Monument.
