Guided tour to Old Tjikko

Take a guided tour to the world's oldest tree - Old Tjikko at Fulufjällets National Park.



Up on the mountain there is a spruce that has been in it for 9550 years. The tree, or Old Tjikko, as it was called, was discovered when researchers examined the tree line on the mountain. The fact that the trees can climb higher and higher up on the mountain slopes suggest that the climate changes.

Spruces can multiply by breaking new roots from the branches. That's how Old Tjikko has survived for so long. During warmer periods, the grain has stood more upright as a tree. When it has been colder, the grain has lived like a bush that can handle the winter sheltered under the snow.
