Araucaria Counter Poem (#7) (from Mabel)

Well, they live for more than a thousand years and don't give fruit until they are 30 years or so.

They have male (brown) and female (green) flowers and their reproductive cycle takes approximately 2 years, however only the strongest trees can be part of it.

Their trunk is so hard that it's very difficult to burn and their favorite habitat is very high up in the mountains or just grow on top of volcanic rocks.

They fed Mapuches and Spanish with its piƱones when the latter began losing the Arauco war and had nothing to eat.

So I bet when you looked at it and thought it was nothing special to see, it must have looked back at you and chuckled...
