At Over 200 Million Years Old, Some Of The Oldest Trees In The World Are Found In Arizona

Arizona is full of ancient landforms, but the conifer trees in Petrified Forest National Park just might be the oldest. The (now fossilized, of course) wood dates to over 200 million years ago, and it’s truly a spectacular sight to behold.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
