leaf03 Oldest Trees On The Planet!

This is a very interesting photo-article. Though I'm not sure what they qualify as "living" some look pretty dead to me...

Jōmon Sugi was beautifull.
I agree some of them looked dead. Oldest dead tree on Earth.

Holy-Guacamoli those are some large, old looking trees.
I just have two things to say,
1. They remind me of some strange gnarly looking creature you would see in science fiction movie.
2. The child in me would like to climb the larger ones and see what the view is like from the top.

Still that is a really interesting article, good find Gnomenative!
