Adonis is a Bosnian pine or Pinus heldreichii, and he is in Greece. The handsome den is at least 1.075 years old and thus the oldest, still-living tree in Europe. That concluded a few researchers three years ago after they to in the heart of the tribe's borders, something that is not harmful for the plant.

There were 1.075 annual rings are counted even before the scientists of the centre of the tree is reached. In reality, there are so many more rings.
Researchers can also very little more to do with the growth rings of trees. Thus was Adonis again the subject of recent research, this time about climate change. Since trees each year a new ring creation, tells Adonis the story that almost two thousand years old. That is unique because the calculations of klimatologen, just walk back to the year 1850.
