There are three tables of trees, which are listed by age and [[species]]. The first table includes trees for which a minimum age has been directly determined, either through counting or cross-referencing [[tree rings]] or through [[radiocarbon dating]]. Many of these trees may be even older than their listed ages, but the oldest wood in the tree has rotted away. For some old trees, so much of the center is missing that their age cannot be directly determined. Instead, estimates are made based on the tree's size and presumed growth rate. The second table includes trees with these estimated ages. The last table lists [[clonal colony|clonal colonies]] in which no individual tree trunks may be remarkably old but in which the organism as a whole is thought to be very old.

Andy likes old trees.
 
The record-holders for individual, non-clonal trees are [[Adansonia digitata|African Boabab]] trees from [[South Africa|Souther Africa]]. Due to the lack of rings the trees can only be dated through carbon dating, the oldest so far discovered is dated to around 6000 years old. The species is non-clonal, but due to the bulk [[Sunland Baobab]] the stem it has recently split in two.
