Whilst getting a smile from the hope of things i wish were true on my face and really understanding how one may hope his perception is true i must
stop that well meant smile on my face and get you an eye opening reply.
To my deepest dismay i must here link you to an article of Wikipedia. Please understand that this is based on scientific evidence and base and is not
food for debate but rather fact...
Taxus baccata can reach 400 to 600 years of age. Some specimens live longer but the age of yews is often overestimated. Ten yews in Britain are
believed to predate the 10th century. The potential age of yews is impossible to determine accurately and is subject to much dispute. There is
rarely any wood as old as the entire tree, while the boughs themselves often hollow with age, making ring counts impossible. There are claims as high
as 5,000–9,500 years, but other evidence based on growth rates and archaeological work of surrounding structures suggests the oldest trees (such
as the Fortingall Yew in Perthshire, Scotland) are more likely to be in the range of 2,000 years. Even with this lower estimate, Taxus baccata
is the longest-living plant in Europe. One characteristic contributing to its longevity is that it is able to split under the weight of advanced
growth without succumbing to disease in the fracture, as do most other trees.
Now that many may have been enlightened i will be pleased to show you a few hundred trees atop Atlantis, (where i live and proudly come from) that are
well over 2000 years old. I am not joking.
Still talking on facts. Its just hard to relay them all if you haven t been around the world and not lived in Atlantis for a few decades with wide
open eyes and mind to figure out the topology and facts and the truth that emerges....
....As for the trees, that is a simple 3 day trip and your camera will be overloaded not to mention the other wonders.
p.s. Take care all.
edit on 3/1/2014 by GEORGETHEGREEK because: I must edit to add and elaborate here that the longest living plants in Europe are not taken
into account since the authors of the wiki article have not studied them and also have not taken full bibliography into account.
