Recommended Posts

For the past 14 years, San Francisco-based photographer Beth Moon has journeyed to almost every continent in a quest to document some of the world's biggest, oldest, and rarest trees. Using the criteria of immense size, great age, and notable history to select her subjects, Moon tracks down magnificent trees located beyond the reaches of civilization on mountainsides, private estates, and protected lands. In her beautiful new book titled Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time, the photographer reveals the staggering beauty of baobabs, sequoias, yews, and other ancient trees that have stood the test of time.

I read Patriarch Tree, a bristlecone pine located in Grand Teton National Park, is the oldest single living organism on earth at 5,064 years old:

Trees are awesome. They provide shade for my vehicles on a hot summer day and clonal's can live for 80,000+ years fed from the same root system like these quaking aspens near Fish Lake, Utah
