The Olive Tree of Vouves Crete -- The oldest known olive tree on Earth, with a tree ring age >2,000 years. Carbon daters have estimated it to be about 4,000 years old, and it still produces olives today.

Cool! [From another post: "...This old pink house is situated at the old dunes, a few hundred meters from the west coast, a very windy place were there isn’t much that can grow. So the tree can only grow where it has shelter. It has looked this way always." Saltum, Nordjylland, DK. Photo credit, by maridesign, ]

Silk floss tree, South America by Alan Sailer. Makes rock climbing look like child's play...tree climbing a spiked course--that's a challenge...or maybe stupid. :-)
