Housed in the core area of Jindaoxia Village, Beibei District, Pianyan Ancient Town is located between two extension hills of southwest side of Huaying Mountain. Back to the Kangxi Period, benefited from convenient traffic- the vital hub of Lingshui, Hechuan and Jiangbei, it developed into a business gathering place with only few stores earlier. No matter how time changes people and their life, this once an industry and commercial ancient town from old Chongqing to Huaying old road has stayed the way it is hundred years ago. The cyan limestone street, aged dwellings covered by tiles, original folk custom... this town keeps most rare features in modern society: natural, primitive and elegant.

Pianyan Ancient Town is time-honored with 350 years history, since the very beginning of which Heishuitan River has been nourishing this town behind the street. To reinforce riverbank and afforest environment, villagers plant Ficus Virens all around the town back to the start, especially in Heishuitan River.

The oldest Ficus Virens in Pianyan Ancient Town should be about 300 years old. Two of them all are named as first-class protective tree by Chongqing Municipal People's Government. Another more than twenty trees located around the ancient town are named the second-class protective trees, constituting a group of century old tree in the ancient street.

偏岩古镇位于重庆市北碚区金刀峡镇中心位置,座落在华蓥山脉西南面的两支余脉之间。因地处邻水、合川、江北的交通要冲,早在康熙年间就有小店零星分布,后商贾云集,是旧重庆通往华蓥故道上的一座工商古镇。虽经数百年的时代变迁,但其街道、建筑、民风仍然保留着昔日古朴、优雅的风貌。

偏岩是有350年历史的古镇,黑水滩河水沿街背而过,人们为了稳固河堤,绿化环境,很早就开始在场镇四周特别是沿黑水滩河栽种黄桷树。

重庆偏岩古镇最长的黄桷树龄应在300年左右,有2棵树被重庆市人民政府命名为一级保护树。另有二十余棵黄桷树系重庆市人民政府命名的二级保护树分布在古镇四周,构成了老街百年古树群。
