High in the White Mountains near the border of California and Nevada, Bristlecone Pines (Pinus Longaeva) have lived and survived many more years than any other trees anywhere in the world. In these mountainous subalpine woodland groves, some of these trees have stood rooted into the ground for nearly 5,000 years. A span of time so long it is hard to comprehend that so many years of the earth’s story has been written in their seemingly ageless wood with every season’s passing.
