PN Conguillío with Araucaria trees

WI_ch246a.jpg

Araucaria araucana (monkey puzzle tree, pehuén) is a very particular representative of the southern conifers. The species is very old and therefore often called a living fossil. It is native to a relatively small area in the Andes of the Sur Chico of Chile and adjacent Argentina.
