Loggers 'Accidentally' Cut Down World's Oldest Tree in Amazon Forest | 04 Sept 2017 | Illegal loggers at the frontier of the Peruvian and Brazilian border have 'mistakenly' cut down what experts claim is the world's oldest tree after allegedly not noticing they were logging deeply in Matsés Indigenous Reserve, an area where logging is illegal, infuriating local conservation organizations and native indigenous communities. The giant Samauma tree that is thought to be over 5,800 years old, judging on its concentric rings, and estimated to be close to 40 meters in height. The tree was a major part of the native tribe's cultural landscape, countless generations of natives having witnessed the long duration of the tree and having included it in their own culture.
