Big Tree in Korea

This is very unusual in Korea. Before 1945, Japan occupied Korea. They needed plywood, so they took all the trees. After the Korean War, the Korean Government started reforestation projects, so most of the trees in Korea are less than 60 years old. I am not sure how this one survived. Inland Waters Eco-Park, Jinhae, Korea.

Hi Joe,

It is impressive. The trunk gives a feeling of decades who went by.
Thanks for showing.

Good composition (as usual...) and very subtle rendition from shadows to highlights. Thanks for sharing

Joe, they may have spared it because of its beauty.
Having its own water supply it has grown happily all these years.
The couple gives us an idea of just how massive it is.
I downloaded a copy and applied a shadow/highlights to see the detail hidden in the upper shadows more clearly, Impressive.
Do you happen to know what type of tree it is?

Hans, thank you. With the size of the roots, I can almost picture this tree getting up and walking away.

Michel, thanks. I think I owe part of the rendition from shadows to highlights to the new Nikon D7000.

Frank, Yes, I think that water supply has a lot to do with the size and health of this tree. I set up on a tripod and waited for someone to walk by to get the size perspective. Unfortunately, I do not know what type of tree this is; I can try to find out.
