One of the oldest trees in the world – a Great Basin bristlecone pine (Pinus longaeva D.K.Bailey). The tree in 2019 was 4,851 years old. It is highly possible that in the grove are older trees – there is reported a tree “Prometheus” which is 4900 years old (in Nevada, Wheeler Peak) and rumored another one which is 5069 years old (in 2019).
