Natural Monument—Ash Tree in Mt Myohyang

The ash tree in Mt Myohyang, one of six celebrated mountains in Korea, stands on the right shore of Myohyang Stream a little away from Pohyon Temple.

It grows together with other trees since around 1870.

It is 24.4 metres high, 3.6 metres round at its lower part and 3 metres across at chest height. Its crown is 15.7 metres from east to west and 14.1 metres from north to south.

Its trunk is forked into two, so it seems to be two.

Its bark is black-grey. The tree comes into bloom between May and June and its fruit ripens between September and October.

The ash tree is under conservation as a natural monument.
