The Bristlecone pine (Pinus longaeva) are the longest living trees we know. Some individuals are the oldest organisms on the earth. They grow in harsh conditions in environments with very little precipitation, cold winters, and strong winds. Slow growth appears to increase their longevity. A 25' tall tree may be several thousand years old! Visit a grove in the White Mountains, Great Basin National Park, or a couple other high elevation mountain slopes.
