In a Nutshell:
* Nothofagus dombeyi (Dombey's beech, coigue, coihue or coigüe (from koywe in Mapuche language)) is a tree speciesnative to southern Chile and the Andean parts of Argentine Patagonia. It grows from 35 to 45° South latitude between 700 and 1,200 m (2,300 and 3,900 ft) above mean sea level.
* It forms dense forests, like those found in the Los Alerces and Nahuel Huapi national parks. It thrives in low hills with gentle slopes, being very demanding of water and soil, the largest forests are found on the slopes looking south, and the healthier specimens tend to grow on the banks of rivers and lakes.
* It is fast-growing and well-distributed species that lives in several climatic conditions.
* It can become a large tree, up to 45 m (148 ft) high and 1.9 m (6.2 ft) in diameter. One tree, felled by a storm in 1954, reportedly measured 2.55 m (8.4 ft)in diameter at the height of a man's chest and a total volume, including the branches, of 87 m3.
* Coihue timber is considered excellent. In Argentina its exploitation is limited by the presence of the best forests within national parks. The wood is bright grayish white, the heartwood is a pale pink-white, which darkens after cut.
* It has been introduced as ornamental in the British Isles and also in the North Pacific Coast of the United States. more...
