DescriptionThe oldest in the world is a 5,000-year-old pine tree.The 5,000-year-old pine tree in the US state of California was the oldest living creature in the world.A pine tree species in the west of the United States was identified as the oldest living creature on earth.Scientists have calculated the age of a pine tree "Pinus longaeva" living in the mountainous region of California at 5 thousand 67. Another pine tree of the same species in the same area appeared to be 4,850 years old.In the third place on the list of oldest creatures is Nevada State, a pine tree of 4,840 years old.Professor of genetics at Utah State University. Dr. Karen Mock stated in his statement to the BBC that he found the age of the trees by examining the DNA mutations they accumulated over time.Mock said, "The trees are breeding ungodly, they grow up everywhere and replenish themselves. This means that the two stems from the same root can not show the age of the tree. Scientists are trying to overcome this problem by proportioning the size of the tree to its age. We used DNA mutations to determine the age of trees in our work, "he said.The oldest living creature list, prepared using the same technique, includes a cypress tree of 3,622 years old in Chile and a fig tree of 2,217 years old in Sri Lanka.
