Feb19th, 2018: Norwegian Wood

This Norway Spruce ran away from home and stands perched on a mountain in Sweden’s Fulufajallet Mountains.
Looks like a poor decision, sticking up like a sore thumb it can’t last more than a dozen years, amiright?

Wrong, Pinecone breath, this little tree is an estimated 9,550 years old, and goes by the name of Old Tjikko.

Located in Fulufjallet National Park, Old Tjikko began growing in this harsh tundra shortly after the glaciers receded from Scandinavia at the close of the last ice age. To put that into perspective, this lowly shrub was growing as humans learned to plow fields, domesticate the cat, and—2,000 years after it first took root—our ancestors begin learning to smelt copper.
Though the tree may have spent millennia as a shrub before the climate warmed enough for it to grow into the spindly tree we see today, scientists had a hunch Old Tjikko was part of an ancient clonal organism. When setting out to establish the tree’s exact age, they carbon dated the roots system beneath the tree itself, revealing the true age of Old Tjikko.

Don't judge a man by his wealth.
Don't judge a woman by her body.
Don't judge the Cellar by me.
