Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, Bishop, California. "Great Basin Bristlecone Pine are believed to be around 1,000-4,800 years old. Due to cold temperatures, dry soils, high winds, & 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 the longest-lived person in the Bible)."
