Norway spruce

(Picea abies)

The oldest spruce of this kind ever found was 468 years old and discovered in the forests of Bavaria. Including trees that have young branches living out of ancient dead trunks, then the oldest has been found in Sweden at approximately 9550 years old. In order to discern the age of a young spruce it is necessary to count the layers of branches (a new layer is formed once a year) and add three to four years for the formation of the first layer.
