Jingshan Park in Xicheng, Beijing, features an ancient tree known as the 'Pagoda Tree within a Pagoda Tree

' Jingshan Park in Xicheng, Beijing, features an ancient tree known as the 'Pagoda Tree within a Pagoda Tree.' Introduction to the 'Pagoda Tree within a Pagoda Tree' In Jingshan, the oldest ancient tree is this Tang Dynasty pagoda tree, which has a diameter at breast height of about 2 meters and a circumference of over 6 meters. Its crown reaches about 20 meters high. Experts estimate that the ancient pagoda tree is at least nearly a thousand years old. From a distance, this ancient tree appears tall and straight, with branches spreading upward, dense foliage, and brimming with vitality. However, upon closer inspection, one will discover that the main trunk of this ancient pagoda tree has long been hollowed out, and the bark on the southwest side has peeled and cracked. The entire tree is now supported only by a very thin layer of cork and the aged bark, maintaining the crown and its vitality. Interestingly, at some unknown time, a small pagoda tree sprouted within the hollow trunk, becoming the unique 'Pagoda Tree within a Pagoda Tree' in Beijing, adding a touch of magic and allure to the ancient Jingshan.
