The Oldest Living Tree and it`s Totally Magical! Nature Strikes Again

oldestlivingtree05
They are called the Great Basin Bristlecone Pine, and are believed to be 1,000 to around 4,800 years old. Because of cold temperatures, dry soils, high winds, and short growing seasons, the trees grow very slowly. One of the oldest living trees on earth, just shy of 5,000 years old, is nicknamed “Methuselah” (after Methuselah, the longest-lived person in the Bible). Pretty awesome even for “just” trees..
