Old trees

My question to me was,” What is the oldest tree alive in the world?”  Wow, so many answers and I am amazed, these threes are almost as old as me.

Methuselah, a 4,845 year-old Great Basin bristlecone pine, found in the White Mountains of California.

The Pechenga Great Oak Tree 2,000 years of age, species Coast live oak Quercus agrifolia is the oldest oak tree in the United States, possible in the world.

A tree not named, at the ripe young age of 4,112, of the species Yew Taxus baccata is alive and found in 2016.

A lot more out there, one is even showing its age of 9,550, an old spruce in the Dalama province of Sweden.

So some fun things to think about, what do trees eat, drink, smoke, and do for fun.  To old for me, but I am not looking any way. lol
