  • From the Japanese period through the 1970’s, the
    government and businesses worked together to develop
    Alishan’s forest industry. In terms of scale and production
    capacity, the Alishan lumber industry was number
    one in Southeast Asia. It was also the collection and
    distribution center for all of Taiwan’s lumber, spurring on
    the development of many flourishing businesses, such as
    banks, hotels, restaurants, bars, and more. For more than
    half a century Chiayi enjoyed an identity as the luxurious
    “Lumber City,” creating immense commercial value that had
    a profound impact on the city’s character. This makes it a
    unique location for understanding the history of Taiwan’s
    lumber industry.
