Here's another very old tree, from Cove Fort, Utah, over 150 years old. They have all these little saplings growing from its roots that they are nurturing, so when the tree dies, they will replant with them!
My great grandpa used to drive a stagecoach from Scipio to Cove Fort back in the day. When one lady passenger complained that it took a pretty poor driver to hit every hole in the road, he is reported to have said, "No ma'm. It takes a damn good driver to hit them all!" This tree was here when he was!
