Trivia Question: Where is the southernmost tree in the world?

Australia
South Africa
Chile
Antarctica

Isla Hornos is a Chilean island at the very southern tip of South America. Here, you’ll find Cape Horn, where the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans meet. It’s one of the windiest places in the world — hurricane-force winds of 75 mph are common — so the trees in the area don’t grow very tall. That includes the world’s southernmost tree, a Magellan’s beech tree located at the edge of the island and standing just a foot and a half tall.

The Answer: The correct answer is Chile.
