80,000yr old Forest Root System

The Pando or the The Trembling Giant as it’s also known is estimated to be 80,000 years old, one of the oldest known living organism. It’s also claimed to be the “heaviest known organism” on the planet at 6,600 short tons. The tree reproduces via a process called suckering. Amazing stuff eh!
