A 2,500-year-old tree, praised by ancient philosophers, burns down in Greece

A 2,500-year-old tree

Devastating forest fires on the Greek island of Euboea destroyed a real natural monument – an olive tree, whose age reached 2500.

As a result of a fire in an olive grove in the city, only smoldering cinders remained in the moat from this tree.

This olive tree was named “Nymph”. It is believed the ancient Greek geographer and philosopher Strabo, who lived in the 1st century BC, mentioned this tree in his works.

The olive tree bore fruit until its destruction, and at least ten people could freely sit along its trunk.

We will remind, fires in Greece broke out on July 28. The fire forced to block part of the highway that connected Athens with the northern regions of the country. Thousands of people were forced to flee their homes due to the threat.
