Luodong Forestry Culture Garden, Taiwan

Péngyǒu nín hǎo!

Thank you Ai Ting for this lovely card.

Once a place where trees felled deep in the mountains were stored and cut up,Luodong Forestry Culture Garden  is now a nature preserve as well as a place where visitors can learn about the history of logging in Taiwan and the lives of those who worked in the industry.

Filled with attractiveJapanese-style buildings constructed between the 1920s and the early 1960s, the 16-hectare garden was opened to the public in 2011. The most memorable sight is the 5.6-hectare log pond, where Formosan Red False Cypresses and certain other types of timber were stored. The water prevented the wood from cracking or warping during the summer, and also drew resins out from the wood, thereby lengthening its lifespan. Even now, massive semi-submerged tree trunks dot the pond.

A very nice card 🙂

I send love !
