Argentinian Farmer Spends Decades Growing Guitar-Shaped Forest In Memory Of His Wife

An Argentinian farmer created this amazing forest shaped like a guitar in memory of his deceased wife.


Planted over several decades, Pedro Martin Ureta built the project in memory of wife, Graciela Yraizoz. The forest is now so huge that NASA can see it from its satellites.


Carefully planned out and using different coloured trees, the forest is a unique piece of artwork imprinted on the landscape.


The idea of such a project actually came from Graciela Yraizoz herself, who was travelling with her husband by aeroplane over a field in Argentina when she noticed someone had shaped a field like a milk pail. She then asked her husband if they could do something similar on their farm. Graciela Yraizoz was a great lover of the guitar.


Her husband always said that they would eventually start the project but tragically it was never undertaken in her lifetime. She died of an unexpected brain aneurysm aged 25 in 1977.


After her death, her husband and her four children got to work in creating the memorial. Eventually, over 7,000 trees were planted.


The outline is made of cypress trees, the strings from eucalyptus trees. The total size of the guitar forest is 2/3rds of a mile long.


The guitar forest is now a tourist attraction for both people on the ground and those travelling overhead. It is clearly visible on the Google Maps satellite view if you know where to look.


NASA has stated that their Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) has picked up and logged the forest.


Eventually, Ureta remarried, but due to a fear of flying he has never seen the guitar from the sky.
