Wow! I had no idea those things lived that long!
About twenty miles from my house was a 300 year old Maple tree called the Crocker Maple, and I believe it fell in an ice storm last year.
When I saw that tree a few years back, I admit there was something awesome about standing there looking at it, just imagining everything that tree had presided over.
The Joshua Tree of the Southwest is very long-livedlike thousands of years; fortunately, it is not a valuable tree for the market.
