Ancient Bristlecone Pines

These ancient bristlecone pine trees are some of the oldest in the world. The Shulman Grove, located in the White Mountains of California, is at over 10,000 feet elevation. A number of the trees have been dated to over 5,000 years old by counting their tree rings. These ancient trees are also a source for analyzing past climate changes. Their power and beauty are stunning. Image copyright Cher Peterson. All rights reserved.
