Oldest Living Tree Found in Sweden
The visible portion of the 13-foot-tall (4-meter-tall) “Christmas tree” isn’t ancient, but its root system has been growing for 9,550 years, according to a team led by Leif Kullman, professor at Umea University’s department of ecology and environmental science in Sweden.

およそ4メートルというその地上の姿はある意味貧弱だけど、根っこを調べると、なんと9550年前からのものだったとか。エゾマツ(トウヒ)ですね。
