    Blood red sap used in photo engraving, embalming, as incense, and wood instrument stain. Photographed at Lotusland and Alice Keck Park, Santa Barbara, California.

    That's the one in Pakenham's Remarkable Trees of the World, isn't it?

    Yep, it's the famous one, at Icod de los Vinos on Tenerife. Its age is cited as anything from 600 to 5,000, though the lower figure is probably the closer to reality. It can even be seen on Google Earth; location: 28°21'59.84" N 16°43'20.09" W, elevation 239m.

    Makes Yousat's specimen look like a little baby ;-)
