El roble - the colombian oak
One species of oak, Quercus humboldtii, was able to penetrate into South America and successfully adapt to the tropical conditions of the mountains of northern South America. Despite not having spread far across the continent, this oak has become one of the dominant trees in the highlands of northern South America at altitudes between 1000m and 3000m.
Quercus humboldtii is a true oak with all the typical characteristics of a real oak, but because the northern Andes are located in the tropics there are no seasons, and the Colombian oak doesn't need to shed all its leaves at the same time as a strategy to survive harsh winter conditions.
