Ancient Taiwan Red Cypress

Taiwan Cypress and Taiwan Red Cypress are both species of the cypress tree.
They are tall, with a strong and delicate structure, beautiful grain and color, high decay resistance, with a fragrant and soft texture.
The mid-elevation area of Taiwan has the island’s highest level of moisture.
It is covered with clouds and mists all year round, and therefore called a cloud forest zone.
Taiwan Cypress and Taiwan Red Cypress are the most commonly found trees in the cloud forest.
Cypress is widely used in architecture, furniture, and sculpture. In the past, a large number of cypress trees were cut down, so there are only a few left.
This red cypress tree of some 4000 years old is so huge that it takes as many as 12 men joining hands to encircle it.
The tree survived the logging period because the empty trunk was considered valueless.
It still stands today, even though it has suffered frost, snow, sun, and rain for long periods of time.
This is worth great respect.
