Give or take a few years and that would be close.

But did he document anything regarding your tree?

He felt sorry for the burning bush so he re planted a Yew tree in south wales to make up for the loss of a plant.
Moses was a nature lover.

So you're demanding proof on this but accept other more dramatic stories based only on faith. :)

Oh it was demanding alright. Asking questions and using a certain tone.

An increment borer is the only accurate way to tell a live trees age.
