oldest living tree 4768 yrs old !
« on: December 05, 2007, 01:29:34 PM »


The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, located between 10,000 and 11,000 ft. in the White Mountains, east of the Sierra Nevada. The trees are the oldest known living trees on earth. The ancient trees have survived more than 40 centuries.

Every single tree in the Ancient Forest is at least 4,000 years old, many reach 4,500 years and the oldest one Methuselah has a confirmed age of 4,768 years which secured its place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

In order to protect Methuselah from souvenir hunters and people who would just "love it to death," the forest service does not disclose its location. It only hints that Methuselah is one of the trees right along the trail in the Ancient Forest.

These are pictures of the most magnificent trees along that trail.

Very cool Kat!

I would love to stroll along that trail and let my mind wander back through the years these trees have been growing.

Thank you for posting this,
