Trees are fascinating — if left undisturbed by humans and our axes, they can grow to incredible sizes, and live for thousands of years.
Around the world, there are trees that have been growing for a much longer period of time than famed arbors like Methuselah or General Sherman.
Some of these beautiful ancients may not look like much — some appear to be mere saplings, compared to the gigantic redwoods.
