In the National Park of Nahuelbuta exist a large stand of impressive Araucaria araucana (Monkey puzzel tree, Paraguas). In the shadow of the Araucarias grow different Nothofaghus species. This species is growing in three distinct aeras of Chile and Argentina. The largest Population can be found in the Andes - two much smaller Population can be found in the western part of chile - a very small one near Villa Las Araucarias and a larger one on the Cordillera de Nahuelbuta where I took this picture.
It is a slow growing tree which is said to become about 1000 years old.
