Thanks! There are 3 more photos which are associated with the location, but not with the species, here - perhaps worth adding the species name to them, too?

Thanks Conifers. I've changed the registered species of this tree.

Been checking up on this - it is Tihue Laurelia sempervirens.

This is indeed not a Laurus sp. - here you can find another low quality image:

Does anyone know what species this is? It is not Laurus nobilis.

It could possibly be Persea lingue (the only species of Lauraceae native in this region), or possibly Laurelia sempervirens (sometimes called 'laurel' in Chilean Spanish, though not native quite as far south as this location).
