    Many organisms can survive when they are colonial clonal trees, but there’s something magical when it comes to a single tree surviving for many thousand years, all by itself! It is worth noting that many of these trees are located in remote or protected areas, and are not necessarily easily accessible to the public. These are 10 oldest living trees in the world-

    Methuselah- a bristlecone pine tree, estimated to be over 4855 years old.

    Sarv-e Abarqu- a cypress tree in Iran, estimated to be over 4000 years old.

    Llangernyw Yew- a yew tree in the United Kingdom, estimated to be over 4000 years old, and still growing.

    Alerce- commonly called Fitzroya cupressoides, a species native to the Andes mountain.

    Patriarca da Floresta- found in Brazil, thought to be older than 2000 years.

    The Senetor- a bald cypress tree in Florida, estimated to be over 3500 years old.

    Olive Trees of Vouves- located on the Greek Island of Crete, estimated to be about 3000 years old.
