The oldest forest in the world is not in a museum. It’s not in a national park. The fossilized remains lie behind a municipal building outside of Greene County.
Land surveyors accidentally discovered the area in 2009, and over the next decade scientists discovered fossilized root systems from three separate plant species. The fossils, which predated the first dinosaurs by 140 million years, were the oldest of their kind, pushing back 2 million years from when the ancestors of modern trees would have developed.
