The beautiful forms of the Coihue (evergreen beech) are a favorite of ours.  They always make the Navarino landscape spectacular and dramatic. Amazing and hearty, these trees remain evergreen and resilient even in the harshest of temperatures, brightening not only the forests of summertime but also the extreme wintery version too.
