The Senator

A tree 3500 years old - sounds like something out of a J.R.R. Tolkien novel. 'The Senator' is a Bald Cypress situated at Big Tree Park in Longwood, Florida. For years, travelers have flocked to the tree - jumping log to log in the swamps to catch a glimpse of this world wonder.

The Senator measures close to 18 feet in diameter and stands 118 feet high. The Senator’s age is estimated between 3,400-3,500 years old, making it the fifth oldest tree in the world.
