Whoa that's one old tree

A famous 378-year-old Eucalypt named Gandalf has some leafy rivals out to shade its renowned longevity in North Maclean.

The venerable senior citizen of the local ecosystem has been joined by what looms as an impressive family tree.

Another round of tree-age testing conducted by Logan City Council has identified eight amazing specimens aged in triple figures, including one that sprouted not that long after Gandalf first put down his roots.

A Tallowwood tree on a private property in Greenbank is estimated by arborists to be at least 320 years-old.
