The world’s oldest trees are dying off at an alarming rate, according to recent study  by Australian National University professor David Lindenmayer. Research  conducted on some of the world’s greatest forests – from Yosemite National Park  and the Brazilian Rainforest – shows that the die-off rate of trees between 100 to 300 years is a grave concern, and climate change is one of the biggest reasons for their decline. This beautiful infographic by Michael Paukner  shows the locations of some of the world’s oldest – and most at risk – trees.
