What’s everyones oldest tree? It can be the tree you’ve had the longest or the actual oldest tree in terms of age of tree. Just wondering and wanted to start a discussion. The tree I’ve had the longest is my Burt Davy Ficus that I’ve had for 3 years and my oldest tree is a sugar maple that had been cut back a billion times over the years from being in someones yard, I would say it’s probably 4-6 years old
A billion may be exaggerated? Many of my yamadori are over 90 to 100 years old. The longest potted tree I have is a Juniperinus Virginiana I worked in a workshop in 1990 .I am proud that tree is still alive. Probably a sign of how hard it is to kill that species!
Mine is a very small collection and just starting to work with collander grown seedlings. Not recommended for old dudes like me with little patience.
A wonderful Ponderosa 300-400 years old. I have 5 more 135-225 years approximately.
I have a ponderosa estimated to be over 250, Thuja that should be over 150, a few larches that are between 150 and 200, a a red pine (Pinus resinosa) that should be around 100 and a couple of other Thuja that should be near 100 too.
