Puede que no sea nada destacable, pero con 9.000 años, este es el árbol más antiguo del mundo.

“El abeto noruego más antiguo del mundo, conocido como ‘Old Tjikko’ en honor al husky siberiano del profesor Leif Kullman, tiene una edad impresionante de 9.500 años y sigue creciendo en Suecia. Este árbol, descubierto en 2004 por Kullman, profesor de Geografía Física en la Universidad de Umeå, tuvo su edad determinada mediante la datación por carbono 14.”

“Durante la era glacial, el nivel del mar estaba 120 metros más bajo que en la actualidad, y gran parte de lo que ahora es el Mar del Norte, entre Inglaterra y Noruega, era entonces un bosque”, señaló el profesor Kullman a Aftonbladet. Los vientos y las bajas temperaturas hicieron que el viejo Tjikko “se asemejara a un árbol bonsái… Los árboles más grandes no pueden envejecer tanto”.
