Ovacık Village Anatolian Chestnut Natural Monument
In the region where Ovacık Village Anatolian Chestnut Natural Monument is located, there are maquis areas where kermes oak (Quercus coccifera) is dominant, red pine (Pinus brutia) forests, and higher oak (Quercus spp) and black pine (Pinus nigra) forests. High alpine meadows stretch above the tree line. In addition, there are natural chestnut communities in suitable areas in the close regions. The 500-year-old monumental tree, one of these chestnut trees, fascinates those who see it.
