Peru - Araucaria

Post by tsharp » Fri Mar 13, 2020 2:56 pm

NTS: In November of 2019 Susan and I spent several weeks I Peru mostly along the Coast and desert/semidesert areas farther from the coast.. I did get to measure a tree in the Araucaria genus. I don.t believe Peru has any native Araucarias but they are a fairly common planted tree. This one was found in St. Catherins Monastery in Arequipa. According to records of the monastery it was an Norfolk Island Pine (Araucaria heterophylla)) planted about 1850.

A portion of he Monastery is still occupied by nuns but a large part is open to the public.

There is more than one way to describe it but the simplest is I saw the img code on the ends of the lines and just copy pasted to a new post.

I am not sure how it failed for you without seeing your post code.
