Chile_290

An alerce tree in a grove in Pumalín. These groves are some of the few remaining in Chile due to extensive logging. The alerce, which can live to be over 3,500 years old, are relatives of sequoias and redwoods. Doug Tompkins started an “Alerce 3000” campaign in hopes of restoring these majestic trees to Chile by then.
