sorry question 3 is Bristlecone pine or Methesulah in the US portion of the Rockys.
 
Methulseleh is the name of the tree. Not the species, just the one. Comes from the Bible, in the mind-numbingly long portion of Genesis where this guy lived so many years, and begat this guy, who lived so many years, and begat this guy.... one of those was Methulseleh, and he lived longer than any other human, and 'walked with God'.

Didn't know it was a Bristlecone Pine, though.... I thought it was a Sycamore.
