Sandai Tree_Title Picture
The famous Alishan 3-Generation Wood is located by the forest trail in the Alishan Forest Recreation Spot. It means an unusual scene of the 3-generation old tree. The first old red cypress lived for 1500 years then dried to death. Its main trunk was spread out on the ground. After 250 years, the moss on the trunk kept its surface wet and plenty of sunshine came from the sky since the old tree fell down, so the 2nd generation tree sprout lived on nutrition of the dried wood and grew strong. Three hundred years later, the 2nd generation wood slowly became old and empty, but a new sprout came out again, so that becomes the 3rd generation wood today. In Taiwan red cypress forests, it is not unusual to see three generations growing in the same area together. However, this 3-generation giant red cypress is taller than 10 meters. Its thick branches, many leaves, and twisted roots and intricate gnarls make it look like a beautiful heart shape, so it becomes the favorite photo place for lovers and wedding couples. It is also the most popular spot to see cherry blossoms. People even nickname the trail which is from Alishan Working Station to the 3-Generation Wood “Cherry-Wood Blossom Path”. When you visit Alishan, you may want to see these valuable old trees. Maybe hundreds or thousands of years later there will be the 4th, the fifth or even the 6th generation green trees coming out. You will never know.
