The Oldest Tree On The Planet, and It Calls California Home

The Oldest Tree On The Planet, and It Calls California Home -tree, california

Methuselah, a bristlecone pine tree from California’s White Mountains, is almost 5,000 years old—and the oldest non-clonal tree in the world. The bristlecone pine (family Pinaceae, genus Pinus, subsection Balfourianae) has an intrinsically low rate of reproduction and regeneration, and it is thought that under present climatic and environmental conditions the rate of regeneration may be insufficient to sustain its population. Today you can visit the grove where Methuselah hides, but you’ll have to guess at which tree it is.
