Methuselah

While we’re enjoying trees as a rich metaphor for our lives, I thought I would toss in this bit of trivia.

Methuselah, is a Great Basin Bristlecone Pine, and the oldest known non-clonal living organisms still alive, at around age 4,839 years.  Bristlecone pines grow in isolated groves at and just below the tree line, on dry, cold, windswept mountaintop.
