I remember that name, Pandanus, from somewhere, probably reading Tales of the South Pacific or some such years ago.

It is amazing how large some trees grow. I wish that tree stamps had some animals or a man next to them to give some perspective on their size.

I suppose even something like that wouldn't give a perspective on the scale of their importance in the whole ecosystem.

Chile 1948 Centenary of Claudio Gay Mouret Publication on Chilean Flora and Fauna



The Chilean Wine Palm is a large, feather type palm from Chile (with the fattest trunk of any palm in the world). The common name 'Wine Palm' is derived from the fact that the trunk is full of a sweet honey like syrup that can be fermented into wine. Unfortunately for the palm, the whole tree must be sacrificed to do so. Many we're indeed cut down to make wine, thus landing the Jubaea on the endangered species list.
(This is a brief summary gleamed from various internet sources, I'm no expert, I'm just trying to add some interest to my collection)

Cryptocarya alba, the Peumo, is an evergreen tree that grows in Chile and Argentina. It measures up to 20 meters height and one meter diameter, with cracked grey bark. It has very scented leaves. The fruit is a red berry and is edible. The wood is very hard and resistant to moisture. The bark is used for tanning leather and dying orange colour. It is appreciated as ornamental and fruit-producing tree.

Chile 1948 Centenary of Claudio Gay Mouret Publication on Chilean Flora and Fauna



Araucaria Araucanian (or the Monkey-puzzle Tree, or Monkey Tail Tree) is an evergreen tree growing to 130ft with a 7ft trunk diameter. the tree is native to central and southern Chile, western Argentina and south Brazil. Because of the great age it reaches it is sometimes described as a living fossil. It is the national tree of Chile. At one time called Araucaria imbricata (an invalid name, as it did not use Molina's older species epithet).
