The autumn-tinted ginkgo trees add more beauty to the scenery of streets in Pyongyang. 🍂
The ginkgo tree is the only living fossil plant among plants which flourished until the Cretaceous period of the Mesozoic age (from 140 million to 70 million years ago).
Tonghungsan, Kajaeul, Jongju, Songgyungwan, Ryongaksan ginkgo trees of hundreds of years old and the Kumya ginkgo tree of over 2,130 years old have been registered as the natural monuments in the DPRK.
Ginkgo leaves and seeds contain large amounts of health-promoting nutrients and medicinal ingredients, so they are widely used as materials for producing health foods, medicines, and quality cosmetics.
Ginkgo trees with various advantages are planted as street trees throughout the DPRK.

Kwail County of South Hwanghae Province situated along the west coast of Korea is well known across the country for its vast expanses of fruit orchards, hence its name kwail (or "fruit" in English). 🍎 Image
In spring the whole county is in a thick veil of apple, pear, and other fruit blossoms, offering a wonderful view. The autumnal scenery of the county is more magnificent with the trees heavily laden with plump fruits. Image
Such a spectacle is the outcome of persevering efforts of the county officials and agricultural workers.

At the outset of this year the county erected a phosphate fertilizer factory by its own efforts, thus providing a sure guarantee for a large increase in fruit production. Image
