A mulberry tree [Morus spp] is the oldest tree in the state of Uttaranchal, and in fact of all India. Mulberries aren't known for being long lived. But the Badrinath Temple tree is beating the odds. Specifically, it's reputed to be at least 1,200 years old. It no longer fruits. But it still grows fresh leaves and beautiful flowers.
