More than 100 years ago, this place was once so busy. When the discover team arrived, several old warehouses and wood cutting machines still marched in it. Yes, this place has indeed been one of the wood cutting centers in the Dutch colonial era. Because it has been very long, the management of this place doesn’t even know exactly when this place began to open in the Dutch colonial era.
But some references mention, this place was once one of the best teak wood storage. In 1970, the teak wood was looted and since then it has been isolated.
Another irrefutable proof is the age of east Indian walnut or the rain trees that grow in this area. One of the attractions of the 6 hectare area is indeed the rain tree, which on average is more than 100 years old. Trees that can live up to the age of 600 this year seem to have been deliberately planted together with the opening of this place.
The rain tree exotica is undeniable giving magical energy while in this place. Rows of large shady trees remind us of the Fangorn forest in the Lord of the Rings film.
As information, the rain tree is a vegetation originating from the American mainland. A scientific study says, this tree is a plant that can suck 28.5 tons of CO2 per year. This ability even exceeds other plants, which on average only can absorb 15 tons of CO2 per year.

Feeling alive 100 years ago did not need a time machine. Nature is the best storyteller who is able to tell stories about the past, present and future. It is like that, right?
