The Hero Ichon Gingko Tree is a female tree in the town of Ichon County, Kangwon Province.

It is said that over 700 years ago a peasant planted the tree in memory of his father who had been brutally killed by the county governor on a charge of resisting against the latter’s plunder, pledging to avenge his father’s death.

It is known that a gingko tree looks strong and pure in appearance and lives long. The gingko tree in Ichon was a grand one with many branches but was severely damaged by the indiscriminate bombings of the US imperialists during the Fatherland Liberation War (June 1950–July 1953).

The trucks of the People’s Army would take shelter from the US air raid under this tree during the war.

Since then the people called it the Hero Ichon Gingko Tree.

The tree is 24 metres high, 8.5 metres round at the root neck, and its crown is 14 metres across. Registered as a natural living monument of the DPRK, the tree is under good preservation.
