Monkey Puzzles - Araucarias - in the UK
Last year, the Society launched its ambitious project to build the “Araucaria Map of the UK”, gathering photos of araucaria trees from all over the country. Members and friends were invited to contribute, sending in their photographs whenever they saw one of these iconic trees, stating the location of the sighting. So far, we have managed to pin nearly
150 photographs to monkey puzzle tree map!
We want to encourage our members and friends to keep looking and keep sending
us their photos, indicating the location and even better, whenever possible,
the postcode of the sighting to firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, keep looking and keep clicking! Maybe you hadn't noticed and your neighbour has
one in her garden, or maybe you walk past one on your daily commute!
Send us your photos and let’s try to reach 200!
Our member David Pearson has written a very interesting blog about
Chilean trees and, of course, the beautiful Araucaria.

Monkey Map by Sarah Horton
Sarah has created her own Monkey Map and although her work with the map has finished and she is no longer receiving information about new locations, her work is available and we, the monkey puzzle lovers, can enjoy it now.
She catalogued around 3000 trees across the UK and abroad.
