The Araucarian Pine's native habit is above 3000 ft. In the southern Andes it is the dominant species above this altitude. In national parks like Huerquehue, Mapuche collected the seeds of this tree and made many dishes from them. Chileans plant the tree in their yards for decoration. This tree was planted in Pucón and is nearly 100 years old.
