Arbol de Piedra (“stone tree”) is an isolated rock formation in the Sur Lípez Province of Bolivia. The rock is located about 18 kilometers (11 mi) north of Laguna Colorada in the Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve. Known as the “Stone Tree,” the rock is shaped like a stunted tree about 7 m high. Its shape, particularly the thin stem, is due to strong winds carrying sand and eroding the soft sandstone. The formation projects out of the altiplano sand dunes of Siloli in the Potosí Department of Southern Bolivia.
