Ginkgo forest in South Korea

"The 43,000 sq. m ginkgo forest in the foothills of Mt. Odae has been opened to the public for the first time in 20 years. The forest is about the size of a baseball stadium, and many of the trees are over 30 years old.
The healthy trees are planted in a straight row 5 m apart. The owner, Yoo Ki-chun, bought the abandoned land 20 years ago and planted ginkgo trees. He opted for the trees because the soil was wrong for cultivation as an orchard. He recently decided to open it to the public. The forest draws a string of visitors who can't resist walking along them to soak in the essence of fall."

Cited from: Arirang, Korea's global tv website: on their website you can watch a video of this forest.

Gedicht Vertelboom en Ginkgo - Poem and Ginkgo

In Antwerpen (Belgie) werd een stadsgedicht - de Vertelboom en de 10 takken der verwondering - ingehuldigd, onderdeel van het stadsdichtersproject 'Bomenstad'.

Het kunstwerk 'Cornerstone' van Roel Jacobs zorgde voor inspiratie. Zijn levend Ginkgo boompje dat in 2010 in de collectie van het openluchtmuseum Middelheim werd opgenomen was dan net 1 jaar.
Roel Jacobs vertelde inspirerende boomverhalen en rond de Ginkgo kwamen de woorden van de 10 deelnemers, immigranten uit alle delen van de wereld. Peter Holvoet-Hanssen maakte er een stadsgedicht van dat in september werd onthuld in het Paleis op de Meir.
Meer info hier.

In Antwerp (Belgium) a city poem - de Vertelboom en de 10 takken der verwondering - was inaugurated. It is part of the project 'City of trees'.
The artwork 'Cornerstone' (
in open-air museum Middelheim) by Roel Jacobs provided inspiration by a living Ginkgo tree.
Roel Jacobs told inspiring stories and
standing by the Ginkgo tree 10 participants (immigrants from all parts of the world) spoke their words. Peter Holvoet-Hanssen made ​​the city poem from their contributions.
