Araucaria araucana (commonly called the monkey puzzle tree, monkey tail tree, Chilean pine, or pehuén) is an evergreen tree growing to 40 m (130 ft) tall. Monkey puzzles have green, glossy leaves that overlap and completely cover each branch. Some people say they look a bit reptilian. This one is in Stockton-Bury Garden, Herefordshire.
