The oldest bald cypress yet documented is at least 2,624-years old, making Taxodium distichum the oldest-known wetland tree species, the oldest living trees in eastern North America, and the fifth oldest known non-clonal tree species on earth. The annual ring-width chronology developed from the ancient Black River bald cypress trees is positively correlated with growing season precipitation totals over the southeastern United States and with atmospheric circulation over the Northern Hemisphere, providing the longest exactly-dated climate proxy yet developed in eastern North America. https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/2515-7620/ab0c4a/meta May 23, 2019 7:07 AM Log in to Reply chefdavid Discoveries like this give me faith there is a Bigfoot.
