Why do trees live longer than humans?
Furthermore, why do trees live so long?
Trees can live for really long, at times, even for hundreds of years. It is because of these meristems that the lost/damaged organs of a tree can be replaced, thus enhancing the overall life span of the tree. The healthier a tree is, the healthier is its meristems, and better is its reproductive capabilities.
Secondly, can trees be immortal? For all intents and purposes, it is biologically immortal. While it's not precisely known whether or not individual trees are biologically immortal in the same fashion, they definitely don't grow old the same way animals do. That's right, trees actually grow faster as they age.
Beside above, what type of trees live the longest?
Bristlecone Pines (Pinus Longaeva), Yew trees, and Ginkgo Biloba trees appear to be the longest lived on record. They are commonly found in climates that are subject to change drastically. Bristlecones are resilient in bad weather and bad soil.
Are some plants immortal?
"Plants are actually or potentially immortal organisms that will live indefinitely provided their environmental requirements are met. Otherwise, plants only die because of biochemical starvation or disease. If their physical requirements are met, plants will grow indefinitely."
