Baeksong (lacebark pine tree) in front of Daeungjeon (Main Dharma Hall)

Baeksong is a 500 year old Lacebark Pine tree that is located at Jogyesa Temple. It features a distinctive and beautiful brown bark. These types of trees grow and reproduce slowly making them very rare and important to the history of Korea.

Originally, it was located at Gakhwangsa Temple and then moved to its current location at Jogyesa Temple. It is located next to Daeungjeon (Main Dharma Hall).

In December 1962, the Korean government designated it as a Natural Monument.

A 450 year old Chinese Scholar Tree is located nearby.
