I did some research and this is a bristle pine tree. They can live to be over 4000 years old! I would guess this one is still a baby at 1000yrs old.

Some idiot cut a section out of one of the roots. I am guessing to date the tree.

The "old man" at The Crags. This is the coolest old tree that I have run into in the Estes Area.
