  • I had the privilege of seeing the world's oldest tree, named Methuselah. Virtually all dendrochronologists place it's age at around 4800 years. I think there might be some confusion with the Prometheus Tree, once located on Wheeler Peak, Nevada. Dendrochronologists placed its age at older than 5000 years. However, the Prometheus Tree was cut down in 1964. It was cut down, in what sounds like a sick joke I'm sure, in an attempt to find out how old it was. The story is muddled, but allegedly Donald Currey's bore got stuck in the tree. He requested the park service get it out, and the park service seems to have misunderstood and cut the tree down. As John Muir said of trees, God can protect them from fire, flood, and drought, but He cannot protect them from fools!

    Interesting note, the bristle cones provide climatologists and earth scientists with a very accurate record of North America's climate, going back to about 11,000 years when they examine the deadwood. They even tell us what volcanoes went off and when, even if that volcano is literally on the other side of the world. They are BEAUTIFUL trees. I encourage anyone to make the trip to see them. They remind me of Treebeard from the Lord of the Rings.
