Bristlecone Pine Tree Ranger Minute
It wasn't until the 1950s that people realized the significance of these trees. Humans slowly become less ignorant and slowly come to recognize the value of the natural environment. Unfortunately, so many people still live with a pre-1950s mindset.

Bristlecones may be the oldest, but other trees can get pretty old too. This one is estimated to be between 4000-6000 years old!
