Corkscrew Tree – Featured Image

Corkscrew Tree, Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest

This ancient skewed tree is one of my favorites in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest just east of the Sierra Nevada, in the White Mountains. I affectionately call it the Corkscrew Tree (not it’s actual name) because of it’s twisted tree trunk. These distinctively contorted trees live in one the harshest growing environments, and yet are some of the oldest known living organisms in the world. The oldest being the Methuselah tree which is over 4,800 years old.
