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.
