QuoteAlive before Jesus' birth, this North Carolina cypress tree is one of the oldest trees not only in the U.S. but also the world.While wars and storms have roared around it, the tree has been alive for over 2,600 years, quietly growing along the banks of a river near Raleigh.Scientists this week said it has now been documented as the oldest tree in the entire eastern United States, a new study said, with an estimated "birthday" of 605 B.C. Incredibly, the study said the tree is one of a group of several cypress trees that have somehow survived over two millennia. "It is exceedingly unusual to see an old-growth stand of trees along the whole length of a river like this," study lead author David Stahle said.He said it's also amazing to realize the trees "were alive during the time of Christ."
Quote from: Onslow on May 11, 2019, 15:06:17 PMI'd like to float n fish some cypress water around the first of Nov. The leaves turn flame red, and the snakes are largely gone. Bass and Crappies will still bite. Surprisingly the Tar between Louisburg and Bunn has many fine cypress and rock structure in many areas. Would love to float and camp this....or Merchants/Bennett Creek.
