2. Summary of Our Project
Zhong-Cheng Rd. is one of the most important streets in Tianmu, Taipei. Lots of Koelreuteria are planted along the way. Because of that, Zhong-Cheng Rd. was called ?Koelreuteria Boulevard? as a nickname. In 1996, the Eslite (Tianmu branch) started to hold a event called ?Tianmu Koelreuteria Festival?, it helps the Koelreuterias on Zhong-Cheng Rd. be more famous. Our project is going to discover the life of the Koelreuterias and the interaction of the residents and the trees.
