The oldest known (as of 03-04-08) living Pinus monophylla (Singleleaf Pinyon Pine) resides on Pilot Peak, crossdated to 1106AD by Scotty Strachan. The tree is likely another few decades older, as the cores for dating were taken at breast height and do not contain the pith. Beside it is a virtual twin tree, dated to a similar age. Both trees appear to be in decent health, and are well-protected from fire.
