Chiayi village turns to pink cassia paradise, a dream come true for village head (2021/05/03)

We head now to Chiayi, where one village head’s dream of a pink paradise has blossomed. The village of Yilung is planted with over 40,000 pink cassia trees, which are the favorite tree of former village chief Yeh Chih-hung. His wife was not sure about the project at first, but after her husband suffered an accident, the real value of the flowers became clear.

The pink cassia bursts into bloom in such a delicate pink that it’s known as the Sakura of Thailand. These tourists were blown away.

This is Yilung village, in Chiayi’s Zhuqi Township. As the cassia blossom, the village becomes a romantic idyll.

Mr. Ho
Tourist
When they bloom, it’s as they say, they’re beautiful because there’s so many of them.

Community members planted the trees because of the village chief’s love for them. Over six years he paid out NT$10 million of his own money to plant the trees.

Yeh Chih-hung
Yilung Village chief, Chiayi
We planted 45,000 cassia trees and went to plant them in our village.

Kao Yu-ching
Wife of Yeh Chih-hung
We really spent a lot of money on this, more than NT$10 million. If he had given it all to me, I’d be a rich housewife. But he told me his dream was to turn our village Yilung into a romantic pink village.

Initially the couple disagreed over the plan. In 2020 Yeh suffered an accident, falling 8 meters out of a tree, and spent three months in the hospital. Watching the flowers bloom as he recuperated helped him see the bright side of life – and that’s when his wife was won over. Now both are committed to seeing their project through.

嘉義義隆村花旗木盛開 村長自費千萬種樹

有泰國櫻花之稱的花旗木,目前正盛開,嘉義竹崎鄉義隆村就種了數千棵,種樹的是當地的村長,因為喜歡這個樹種,6年來花千萬種植花旗木,在粉白相間花朵點綴下,社區呈現粉紅色相當夢幻。

有泰國櫻花之稱的花旗木盛開,粉色花朵點綴樹梢,看起來好夢幻,讓遊客忍不住讚嘆真的好美。

這裡是嘉義竹崎鄉的義隆村,盛開的花旗木讓社區充滿粉色,超級浪漫。

[[遊客何先生]]
“看起來就是所謂的數大便是美。”

義隆村的社區之所以種植那麼多花旗木,是因當地村長多年前看了花旗木盛開後的樣子就愛上了,決定自掏腰包,6年花千萬種樹。

[[嘉義竹崎鄉義隆村長葉志紘]]
“買花旗木的樹種4萬5千棵,然後開始下去種。先在我們義隆村的境內種植。”

[[葉志紘太太高毓菁]]
“為了這些他花費了真的好多錢,就一千多萬,如果全部給我,真的我就變成小富婆了。不過他跟我說,他的夢想是想要把我們村莊,義隆村打造浪漫粉紅村。”

葉志紘想打造粉紅社區一度遭太太反對,因為去年一場意外,他不慎從八公尺高的樹上摔下,住院三個月,休養時因看到了盛開的粉色花朵心情開朗起來,而這也讓葉志紘的太太決定繼續支持他打造粉紅社區的夢想。
