  El Arbol de Santa Maria el Tule

El Arbol de Santa Maria el Tule (or just "el Tule" for short) is the tree with the largest width/circumference in the world. The tree is over 2,000 years old and its girth (circumference) is a whopping 58 meters long. Just imagine what the history of this enormous tree has been or what it has seen so far in its life. This tree was alive during the rise and falls of countless of civilizations and conquistadores. Heck, this tree was about 800 years old when the fall of Monte Alban occurred!
