    Some time ago you sent photos of an ancient underground tree that very occasionally sprouted above the surface. Could you please tell me how to find that entry?

    As I live in Missouri now, I miss the European larch that I grw up with. Such a beautiful spring green as well as the fall color 🙂

    Most of the accurately dated oldest trees in the world may be in the New World but that may be because the Old World species tend to get hollow as they age making accurate dating difficult. The estimated old trees on the Wikipedia page you link are mostly Old World. One yew could rival that bristlecone pine.

    This one is Japanese Larch L. kaempferi or Dunkeld Larch L. x marschlinsii – note the recurved cone scales.
