Summary

This forest is 2km long, approximately the same length with the Korean measurement of five ri (O-ri, approx. 2km). Recently it is called “Jacheon Forest.” In particular, dense forest covered with the area of Jacheon-ri on both sides through 5-ri before a road was built. After a national roadway opened, the forest separated into two parts on the left and right. Later, many areas were lost due to a new school construction, enlarging the road, and typhoon. Only some areas in front of Jacheon Village retain the old ambience but driving along the un-crowded national roadway creates a tranquil mood.

Orijangnim Forest was established to block the strong winds from entering the village, bank protection, and flood prevention. It is comprised of 12 species and 280 trees including oriental oaks, forming a forest. It was designated as Natural Monument No. 404 as it was thought to be a valuable asset related to nature-loving spirit.
