"Magnificent & Ancient Flora"

The Árbol del Tule is a gigantic ahuehuete, or cypress, tree located in the town of Santa Maria del Tule, 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) east of Oaxaca City. This legendary tree measures 36.2 meters around and is anywhere from 1200 to 3000 years old. The tree reportedly grows on a sacred Zapotec site. Aside from its sheer size and age, the other interesting feature about the tree are the many animal shapes formed by its gnarled bark, with sightings ranging from jaguars to elephants. The tree now is the centerpiece of a plaza that was built around it to showcase the tree.
