The Oldest Bulgarian Tree
The oldest Bulgarian tree – and according to some, the oldest living tree in Europe – is an oak in the village of Granit near Stara Zagora. Its age is estimated at 1,666 years. If we think deeper into the age of the tree, we could calculate that it was planted in 345 AD and 336 years before the creation of the Bulgarian state. The tree crown spreads over 1,017 sq m (10,946.9 sq ft) while it stands at 23.4 m (76.8 ft), and the diameter of the trunk (also called circumference) is 7.5 m (24.6 ft).
