Breaking News for 2008
A favorable climate has produced an upright trunk since the beginning of the 1940's.  Photo: Leif KullmanApril 16, 2008; The world's oldest recorded tree is a 9,550 year-old spruce in the Dalarna province of SWEDEN. The spruce tree has shown to be a tenacious survivor that has endured by growing between erect trees and smaller bushes in pace with the dramatic climate changes over time. For many years the spruce tree has been regarded as a relative newcomer in the Swedish mountain region.

Discovered in 2004, the lone Norway spruce-of the species traditionally used to decorate European homes during Christmas-represents the planet's longest-lived identified plant, Kullman said.
The researchers found the shrubby mountain survivor at an altitude of 2,985 feet (910 meters) in Dalarna Province.
The tree's incredible longevity is largely due to its ability to clone itself, Kullman said.
The spruce's stems or trunks have a lifespan of around 600 years, "but as soon as a stem dies, a new one emerges from the same root stock," Kullman explained.
