World’s Oldest Tree Found In Northern Sweden?

One of the world’s oldest trees may have been discovered in the northern Swedish county of Dalecarlia. Scientists sent samples of the Norway Spruce to a lab in Miami and were shocked when the results showed that the tree was over 8000 years old.

Speaking to local Swedish Radio in the county, Lars Hedlund from the county council says the tree was one of the first to grow following the end of the last ice age.

Norway Spruces are often used as Christmas trees.
