The Oldest, Tallest, Widest and Biggest Trees in the World
Methuselah–Oldest Non-Clonal Tree in the World (4,845 Years Old) Methuselah is a pinetree growing high in the WhiteMountains of Inyo County in California. It is named after one of the longest-living characters in the Bible, who lived to be almost 1,000 yrs old. Unlike the Tjikko that has survived by "cloning" itself, the Methuselah is believed to be the oldest living nonclonal tree/organism. It has been dendrochronologically tested (counting tree rings) & as of 2012 the tree is 4,845 years old!
