World’s Oldest Known Tree Reconstructed
Pieces of a tree were discovered in New York about a hundred years ago after a flash flood. The bits of tree were dated to around 385 millions years old but there were only pieces of stumps, so scientists were unable to get a good idea of what the entire tree looked like. Until now.
A few years ago in an area near the other location of the tree, archeologists found fossilized remains of the top of a tree dated from the same period.
The journal ‘Nature’ recently revealed the details of the reconstruction, you can read the article on LiveScience and check out the artist’s rendition below.
