During the festival, the red-leaf forests covering nearly a thousand mu (about 66.7 hectares) contend in beauty with bright and delightful red leaves. Smoke trees are flourishing and provide a vast area of red leaves to be appreciated in autumn. Ingot maple trees (acertruncatums) are named after the ingot-like fruits.
