Jangsasong Pine Tree grows in front of Jinheunggul Cave on the roadside from Seonunsa Temple to the Dosolam hermitage. It is about 600 years old, with height of 23m and girth of 3.07m. Its trunk is divided into three parts and its overall appearance resembles a fan. People in Gochang called the tree Jangsasong or Jinheungsong -- Jangsasong since the old name of this region was Jangsa-hyeon, and Jinheugsong because it is located in front of Jinheunggul Cave. Since the Jangsasong Pine Tree at Dosoram Hermitage is biologically valuable and has been preserved well by our ancestors, it is designated and protected as a Natural Monument.
