|There is a part of the original olive plantation at side of the All Nations Church I posted yesterday.How you can see here, they are very large and old trees. Some scholars tried to identify their age, and discovered their timber has around 800 years but they had access to the internal part of the trees and they can be older, at same time these trees are sons of a same tree, maybe one of those ones from the Jesus time.|
Ao lado da Igreja de Todas as Nações, a qual postei ontem, há um pedaço da antiga plantação de oliveiras. Cientistas analisaram as árvores e descobriram que elas foram plantadas há 800 anos, contudo eles não conseguiram ter acesso ao interior do tronco e portanto elas podem ser mais antigas. O fato curioso é que todas elas são filhas de uma mesma árvore, quem sabe uma das que estavam ali quando Jesus passou pelo horto.

Bonjour, cher Jorge,
Il est fort possible que ces arbres aient des siècles et des siècles.
C'est superbe de pouvoir contempler ces arbres qui voient défiler les siècles et l'Histoire.
Très bon sujet.

These trees really look old indeed and they are very impressive too. Excellent capture. The photo breathes a very pleasant and calm mood on this bright and sunny day.
Ciao Jorge, great view of fantastic old olive, fine details, wonderful colors and splendid clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
Yes, olive trees live a long time. While we were there, they showed us some trees that could have been saplings during the time Jesus walked on Earth.
