The World’s Oldest Tree Was Discovered In Sweden As Old As 9,500 Years Old

The oldest tree was found in 2004 by Leif Kullman, a professor of Physical Geography at Umeå University, who used technology of carbon-14 to determine the age of its root network, as old as 9,500 years. This Norwegian spruce was named “Old Tjikko,” after Kullman’s Siberian husky.
