Distribution and habitat

Extensive north-south, discontinuous, distribution from Region IV (province Limarí, 30°40’S) to Region X (province Osorno, 40°30’S). It occurs in the Andes and in the Coastal Cordillera and has an altitudinal range of between 15 to1400 m. It usually grows in the sclerophyllous forets as isolated individuals or in small stands on shaded hillsides and in humid valleys. It is particularly frequent in the Roble-Hualo forest type, where it can grow with Nothofagus dombeyi and N. nervosa depending on the latitude. In Reserva Nacional Los Bellotos del Melado, in the Andes, it is associated with Beilschmiedia berteroana, Cryptocarya alba, Nothofagus glauca and Quillaja saponaria. In more northern coastal habitats it is often associated with Aextoxicon punctatum, Beilschmiedia miersii, Cryptocarya alba and Schinus latifolius. In the south of its range it is a very scarce.
