Great story about the massive mahogany tree from the Chiquibul, known as The Tree. Many famous musicians' guitars were crafted from it.

"What is certain is that the story begins in 1965 deep in the Chiquibul jungle, a remote and largely uncharted broadleaf rainforest in what was then British Honduras and is now Belize. It was there that a clutch of vagabond loggers scouting for timber happened upon an ancient mahogany tree.

Mahogany had for centuries been that nation's primary export, and was a popular target of poachers and smugglers. Few large mahogany trees remained, and this one was enormous-12 feet in diameter at its base, soaring 100 feet into the canopy. If not the most massive tree in the forest, it was certainly a contender for the title."
