Ancient Tree in Indiana


Dr. Fong Say:

Whoa, that's one old tree. I does seem like a shame that a tree could remain intact for 6000 years only to have someone chop it up and turn it into top-dollar furniture.


"A large oak tree dug up last summer in a gravel pit could be 6,000 years old or more and might have been entombed by a glacier during the last ice age, scientists say."


"Based on how deep the tree was buried, he and others estimate its age at 6,000 years. But it could be much older - perhaps up to 30,000 years."
