In addition to marking a tree's age, the width and color of tree rings indicate how wet or dry a given year was.
Because of previous fieldwork, the team knew that a particular stand of bald cypress trees in the Black River's Three Sisters Swamp was one of the oldest tree clusters in the country. That earlier research identified several trees between 1, and 1, years old.
The new study reveals that bald cypresses have even greater longevity than researchers previously thought. In addition to the 2,year-old individual reported above, the researchers found a 2,year-old cypress in the same swamp — and there are likely more where that came from.
According to the new study, bald cypress trees are now confirmed to be the oldest known wetland tree species on Earth. This discovery also makes the bald cypress the fifth-oldest species of non-clonal tree on Earth; only individual Sierra juniper Juniperus occidentalis trees, giant sequoias Sequoiadendron giganteum , alerces Fitzroya cupressoides and Great Basin bristlecone pines Pinus longaeva have been found to be older. The world's oldest bristlecone pine , located in the White Mountains of California, is 5, years old — roughly twice the age of the newfound cypress.
