A visit to Yuelu Academy October 24, 2013: This is a beautiful place to visit. The site has been an academic institution for more than 1000 years. The architecture is stunning, and the courtyards are charming.

My group from the International Wood Culture Society symposium on Taxodiaceae was primarily interested in the use of wood at this site.

I enjoyed exploring the architectural details, and it was nice to see Ginkgo trees in their native land.
