    A combination of resistance to disease, insect-resistant wood and the ability to form aerial roots and sprouts makes ginkgos long-lived, with some specimens claimed to be more than 2,500 years old.


    The longest living tree was nicknamed Prometheus, a tree growing near the tree line on Wheeler Peak in eastern Nevada, USA. The tree was at least 4862 years old when it was cut down by a graduate student and used for research. Prometheus was a member of a population of bristlecone pine trees growing on Wheeler Peak.
