National Tree



The national tree of the DPRK is pine, an evergreen coniferous tree. It is founded in the vast areas below 800 m above sea level.

It takes ten years to produce blossoms and cones. It can grow even in dry and infertile land, in the regions with poor and sandy soils, and by the seaside. It requires much sunshine.

Its annual rings are conspicuous and its odour is delicate.

As it contains 53.6% of fibres, it is used for building vessels, bridges and other structures, and making furniture and pulp.

Its resin is used for making salve or adhesive plaster and it is efficacious in the treatment of inflammation and neuralgia.

The evergreen tree represents the unshakeable faith and will of the indomitable Korean people.
