The trees of the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest in the White Mountains (Bishop, California), are the oldest living recorded organisms on Earth. Although many of them are at least 2000 years old, they are ‘youngsters’ in comparison to the pictured “Methuselah” tree which has been dated at more than 4770 years. The oldest tree in the world is also a bristlecone pine located in the same area. Its age is thought to be over 5060 years, which would give it a germination date of around 3050 B.C. 


Here’s my second Info-graphic which is also a poster, the first picture show’s my first failed attempt, too many lines and too much information to put in, I decided to put less information making the whole infographic easier to read and much clearer as a whole. The infographic shows the world’s oldest living aquatic organisms.

The lines were firstly done using Illustrator, after which the image was imported into Photoshop for the rest of the details, as they’re much easier to add in Photoshop.
