About This Item

Pirangi_cashew_tree

A wooden ring to a tree ring to a tree—is that a logical sequence?   Whether it is or not, this is one of a series of wooden rings named for famous or unusual trees.

Pirangi Cashew Tree is located near Natal, Brazil.  Upon approaching it one might think you’re entering a forest.  But despite covering an area larger than a football field, it is in fact a single tree.  It was planted in 1888 by a fisherman who was unaware that the tree had a genetic mutation that would allow it to eventually take over so much space. When the branches of the Pirangi tree touch the ground, it atypically puts down roots and keeps growing.  The Pirangi is now 80 times larger than an average cashew tree.  The size has caused a controversy since its roots started taking over a nearby highway, only allowing one car to pass at a time.  Specialists fear it might die if trimmed.
