Tree Spirit Pagoda

Located on the right-hand side not far away from the front of the Alishan Museum, the pagoda is a 20m tall stone structure built in 1936 to commemorate and soothe the spirits of the trees that were cut down.

The cedars we see today were grown in a later time. It is famous as an ecology conservation area and has gained in popularity through the years.



樹靈塔

阿里山博物館前方不遠的右方,就是近年來因生態保育思潮興起而赫赫有名的樹靈塔。 樹靈塔為一高約20公尺之石塔,建於1936年,藉以紀念、安撫當初遭砍伐的樹靈,如今週遭都是後來栽植的杉林。 近年來因生態保育思潮興起而變的赫赫有名。
