There it is, the majesty of the Bristlecone.
Look at the twists from several millennia of terrible winter winds, look at the diminutive size from several millennia of long and cold winters with a lack of oxygen.
But look how it stands proud and tall! What a tree to marvel at! Bristlecone pines are works of art - twisted by nature into fantastic shapes.
Old trees have fascinated people of all times, particularly bristlecone pine trees. They are a kind of universal symbol all over the world. Until today old, majestic trees like bristlecone pine trees are understood as a symbol of life, the eternal forces of nature, longevity and the capability to survive hardship.
And old trees and forests have also become a symbol for ecological balance. They remember us to take care about our planet in a responsible way.
