Guatemalan Fir is a large evergreen tree native to Central America.
It flourished as the southernmost pine species until the 1940s but is now classified as ‘endangered’ on the ICUN Red List of Threatened Species. Mayans and then the Spanish used A. guatemalensis for roof shingles, lumber, charcoal, and firewood. In addition, whole trees are sometimes used for Christmas trees.
