The Tree with the Largest Diameter in the World

The Tree with the Largest Diameter in the World | Travels | Scoop.it
Stanford Jose's insight:

This tree is an Ahuehuete or Montezuma Cypress growing in Oaxaca, Mexico in the town of Santa Maria del Tule. The trunk of the tree is 33 feet in diameter and has a circumference of 178 feet. Originally thought to be multiple trees that had grown and fused together, DNA tests have shown that it is actually all one tree.
