Chilean Palo Verde possibly comes from the mottled green color of the trunks but does not seriously resemble Cercidium. It is found in a number of semi-arid regions of Bolivia, Brazil, Patagonia and Argentina. Chanar is found growing naturally from sea level to over 7, feet where it may grow as a shrub or to a tree nearly 30 feet tall. Trees tend to be quite upright with a spreading canopy with both straight and mildly curving trunks. Leaves are cold and drought deciduous. It tends to occur in areas with high water tables or near permanent sources of water.

Morphology[ edit ] The common name Chilean Palo Verde comes from the mottled green color of the trunks but does not seriously resemble Cercidium. As trees mature the trunks and branches take on a sculptural quality with long longitudinal, irregular ridges and valleys. Along with this undulating trunk, large flakes of the bark peel off or decorticate hence the species name decorticans. The peeling tan to brown bark is eventually shed revealing the dark green, "immature" trunk beneath. The contrasting colors and textures created by this puzzle-piece pattern make the tree visually fascinating. The tree flowers in spring, either singly or in clusters.
