The Jeju cherry blossom tree is a species which is found in its natural state only on Jeju’s Mt. Halla and Mt. Daedun in Haenam, Southern Jeolla Province. Because of its rarity and its vital role in research, it has protection status in Korea.
Jeju holds a festival every spring to celebrate the beauty of the blossoming cherry trees. The event is popular with islanders and tourists who come to view the splendid spectacle of the trees in full white and pink.
