Inside the flat wide caldera of the dormant volcano of El Valle, in Panama, is a town that goes by the same name. Here, in the foothills of Cerro Gaital behind Hotel Campestre, are a group of trees that have grown with square trunks. Even the tree rings are square. The trunk is square at the base but then becomes round as it moves upward, taking on the look of a normal tree.

How rectilinear the tree trunks are depends on who you ask. Popular websites report that the trees have “hard right angles”, but reviewers on Trip Advisor don’t think so.
