During the Korean War, residents of Hamgyeong-do Province fled to Sokcho, Gangwon-do Province, so that they could return to their homes quickly once the war ended.

A few years ago, the Korea Forest Service surveyed 1,200 citizens asking about the tree that represents Korea. 62.3% of the respondents said the pine tree, making it No. 1.
