Sardinia is a land of ancient trees, true botanic archeology.
Left: pine, planted in 1867 by Giuseppe Garibaldi for the birth of his daughter Clelia, still dominates in the garden of the Caprera island White House.
A destra: Right: “S’Ozzastru”, as it is called by the locals, is the patriarch of old olive trees in Santu Baltolu, near Luras. With its estimated age between 3000 and 4000 years, it is also the oldest olive tree in Europe.
4000 years, say, are 700 years before Tutankhamon.
