"Mammoth Trees are the oldest tree in the world"

FALSE
Californians mammoth trees are over 100 m high and several thousand years old. The oldest mammoth tree is over 2,200 years and the most giant has even 3,500 years. Long thought that there are no trees older than that, until, in the 50s of the twentieth century was discovered in the Rocky Mountains, pin-to-man, a rather modest plant. "Prometheus" was discovered by accident in 1964 and had 4950 years old. "Matusalem" are still in California and has 4770 years of life. This pine is probably the oldest form of life in the world still alive.
