Alerce Forest

The alerce, or Patagonian cypress, is considered the South American cousin of the giant sequoias found in North America. It is estimated that 25 percent of the world's alerces are within the boundaries of Pumalin, which is one of the reasons the Tompkins have established the park. (Jeffrey Kofman/ABC News)
