Chachacomo (Escallonia resinosa)

It is a very resistant shrub that can grow up to 4000 meters in altitude and is between 2 and 6 meters high. Often used as a terrace support because it resists erosion, its wood is of excellent quality for traditional Andean constructions. A larva that lives in symbiosis with the tree is consumed by the native populations of the Andes.
