Did you know?
Methuselah (pictured above), a Great Basin bristlecone pine (Pinus longaeva) in the White Mountains of California, is 4,845 years old and was once thought to be the oldest single living tree in the world. This changed in 2013 when researchers at the Rocky Mountain Tree-Ring Research Group discovered a different P. longaeva in the White Mountains that was 5,062 years old. How’s that for long-lived?
