Algarrobo de los Aguero (Algarrobo Abuelo), Merlo

3.1
#2 of 7 in Wildlife in Province of San Luis
A tree that has lived for almost a millennium, Algarrobo de los Aguero (Algarrobo Abuelo) inspires admiration for nature. The "Grandfather Tree"--as it's affectionately called--takes pride of place in a park area surrounded by younger vegetation. Competing claims exist as to the old mesquite tree's actual age, ranging from 800 to 1,200 years. View the tree and admire the resilience of nature it represents, with its massive trunk and thick, twisting limbs. A market section of the park sells local food and souvenirs.

  • It is very emotional to know that this tree has around 1000 years (a couple of years ago the poster said 800, now says 1200.. heaven knows, but that is old is old)... that... is not more than that... beautiful tree... If it's worth?... you will know when to go.
