These are the oldest olive trees in the world
I am in awe of these old trees. Wonderful photograph.
These are not the oldest - the oldest olive tree in the world is situated in Pano Vouves, Chania, West Crete. The evidence and findings was confirmed by UNESCO and this information is also listed on wikpedia.com
Are these the trees that are mentioned by Carol Drinkwater in her books? She claims to have discovered the oldest olive trees in the world in Lebanon. I would also like to know if these are anything to do with the Edde family. I used to know a Lebanese woman who said her family owned olive trees and her family name was Edde and they came from Byblos.
these Trees are in the North of Lebanon in Bshellay not in Byblos.
about Carol Drinkwater,yes these are the oldest olive trees she talk about
They are the oldest trees, and one of them has a trunc perimeter of 28 meters!! that is TRUNC peremeter!!
