The Montezuma Cypress Tree at Tule

Two Thousand Years Old. 1500 feet wide. Over 635,ooo Tons.

This tree outside of Oaxaca is quite the specimen. Apparently it tapped into an underground spring which accounts for its mass and longevity. When arborists realized a few years ago that it had tapped out its water source, they began feeding it.
