Researchers discovered this conifer in Sweden in 2004. The lone Norway Spruce is 13 feet tall, but radiocarbon dating shows its tremendous root system has been growing for 9550 years. That makes this tree 4000 years older than the first pyramids. A spruce’s trunk has the lifespan of about 600 years, but as soon as the stem dies another one emerges from the same root stock. The tree has essentially been cloning itself for thousands of years.
Atleast give it a bit of water! For being the oldest tree in the world, you can see no one actually give a damn about it. You would think “researchers” would look after such a great discovery!
