Guatemala's 'tree of life'

Super-nutritious nut helps communities recognise value of local forests and their bounty.

    In the forests of Guatemala a small nut free for the taking has the potential to transform Central America.

    Called the Maya nut, it is so nutritious that entire villages have survived for centuries by eating food made from it.

    Locals call it the tree of life, as Al Jazeera's David Mercer reports.
