super old

I love these gargantuan bald cypress trees at Pinnacle Mountain State Park, but it's hard to get a decent photo of them because they're so big. This is what the website for the Arkansas Famous and Historic Tree program says about them: "The Department of Geography, University of Arkansas core-dated 21 Bald Cypress trees in 1985. The trees were dated within ranges of 1531 to 1889, plus or minus 30-50 years. The trees are hollow and are likely to be more than 100 years older than the cores indicate."
