Thank you very much for your comments on the camelia growing wild in Alishan Forest.
March is the time to visit Alishan as there are many trees in full boom offering a most beautiful spectacle even on a foggy morning.
There are some orchards planted by the Japanese during their occupation of Taiwan. “Between 1895 and 1945, Taiwan was a dependency of the Empire of Japan. The expansion into Taiwan was a part of Imperial Japan's general policy of southward expansion during the late 19th century.
As Taiwan was Japan's first overseas colony, Japanese intentions were to turn the island into a showpiece "model colony". As a result, much effort was made to improve the island's economy, industry, public works and to change its culture. “
The trees in the photos are growing wild in the forest.
