The news is out: [Alive before Jesus’ birth, this North Carolina cypress tree is one of the oldest trees not only in the U.S. but also the world.
While wars and storms have roared around it, the tree has been alive for over 2,600 years, quietly growing along the banks of a river near Raleigh.
Scientists this week said it has now been documented as the oldest tree in the entire eastern United States, a new study said, with an estimated “birthday” of 605 B.C.
Stahle said that he and his team discovered the old trees while attempting to reconstruct the historical climate of the southeastern U.S. by measuring the width of tree rings.
As for the oldest tree in the entire U.S., that honor goes to a bristlecone pine tree in California, which is estimated at over 5,000 years old.]
How can a North Carolina cypress tree be the oldest in the US at 2,600 years old with an estimated “birthday” of 605B.C. compared to a bristlecone pine tree in California, which is estimated at over 5,000 years old? It’s all in the same damn article. And why the message “Alive before Jesus’ birth”? The name of Jesus turns anything into a joke.
