Because of the far distance from the sea, and close to the river bank of the Zhuoshui River, it is rich in agricultural products, for instance rice, rice noodles, eggs, mushrooms, grapes, burdock tea, peas, pears, etc. Looking back to the past, Chutang people hope to move forward with the goal of 'agriculture, tourism and peace' as a joint effort.

Every time when the heavy rain comes, the river suddenly rises, they often flood the coast protection, so they are often submerged and soaked in floods. In order to resist the impact of the 'Zhuoshuixi' River, its tree shape evolved into a low squat, the trunk is flat and closes to the ground, and the branches produce many gas roots deep into the soil, allowing the gas roots to become thick trunks, and the crown width extends to the surrounding three. More than a hundred meters, creating a technique landscape of a tree into a forest. In the long-term struggle with the 'Zhuoshuixi' River, 'Jiulong DaShugong' developed a natural green fortress to protect itself for survival. Under the broad tree umbrella, there is a Three Holy Buddhas for the people to worship and bless the villagers. Today, it has become an important field for human activities and leisure activities in the region.
