Read My Rings: The Oldest Living Tree Tells All

Prometheus still holds the count for the most rings of any tree, at 4,862.
The next oldest tree, called Methuselah, was identified by Edward Schulman in the 1950s and is still alive today. Though initially made public, Methuselah'€™s whereabouts in the White Mountains of California have now been purposely obscured to prevent the tree’s destruction. Schoettle says the Forest Service conceals Methuselah'€™s location "€œso that we don't love it to death." -- | Collectors Weekly
