Trees, you can't get any closer to the earth than that. Hope you had a good earth day!
Imagine a life of 6000 years on earth, Wikipedia informs that" The Baobab tree species in Africa is supposedly the longest living species of trees in the world. Individual specimens have reportedly lived for over ten thousand years. The legends, tales, and myths of the surrounding peoples provides support to these claims. Unfortunately the species do not form consistent annual growth rings, and radio carbon dating is sometimes ineffective. However one specimen, the Sunland Baobab, has had its age Carbon Dated to approximately 6000 years. Combining the age with the size and girth of the tree, lends credibility to the other claimsfor more info on this species http://tinyurl.com/26s8l5qmuch lovegillena
