Dongshih Forest

Posted Date:2017/03/23 1130

Introduction

Dongshih Forest Garden is a low altitude forest home to a variety of animals and plants. It includes natural forest, man-made forest, pure forest and mixed forest. There are forests of cedar trees, tung oil trees, maple trees, Taiwan acacias and plum trees. In early spring, cherry blossom trees flourish in baby green. Fireflies sparkle like thousands of twinkling stars towards the end of spring. Then, all greeneries thicken in summer while tung oil trees bloom in snowy white and Hercules beetles celebrate on top branches. In fall, the mountains are colored by yellow tung oil leaves and red maple leaves. In winter, leafless branches create such desolate beauty.
