3500 Year Old Tree The Senator

Imagine a tree, 3500 years old, and the history and knowledge it must possess. The Senator is a species of Bald Cypress situated at Big Tree Park in Longwood, Florida. For year, travelers flocked to the tree, jumping log to log in the swamps, to catch a glimpse of this world wonder.

The Senator Bald Cypress tree measures close 18 feet in diameter and stands 118 feet high. The Senator's age is estimated between 3,400-3,500 years old, the 5th oldest tree in the world.

From a naturalistic standpoint,trees are the eyes to history. They are living, as are we. So to say they experience nothing, well it's just impossible.

"Wait...you said that The Senator is a "species" of bald cypress? That would mean that there are at least several of these "Senators." But your article implies that there is only one."

"The Senator", a species of Bald Cypress, is the only Bald Cypress referred to as "The Senator". Senator is the name, it's the largest known individual specimen and a species of conifer native to the southeastern United States.
