Yet, the famous Methuselah Bristlecone Pine trees continue to thrive in the region. These trees are often referred to as the “King of Trees,” and they have been around for more than 8 centuries. These trees continue to be an inspiration for researchers and nature enthusiasts alike, prompting science and art for development !The oldest tree was found. The tree has been planted in a shelter of rock at the Mount of Heavenly Pitcher State Park with an age of around 3900 years. Which is also the oldest tree on Earth and preparing to be planted below the ground in a laboratory if it survives for thousands of years by itself without needing another seed.
