Imagine living to a million years in age? Well, the world’s oldest tree, a.k.a. Pando, a.k.a. The Trembling Giant, is said to live to between 80,000 to 1,000,000 years. You might be trembling too when you get that many rings of age.

Pando lives in Utah, USA, and is actually an ancient root system. The actual trees that sprout from it are younger.

Check out where the world’s oldest trees on Earth come from in this infographic. Sadly, there are none listed from China. Is it because they were bulldozed during the Cultural Revolution, or perhaps another reason?
