On the subject of trees there is a report done back around 2000 on the Lincoln Mountain wild forest that core sampled Black Gum trees and dated them back to the late 1400's if I'm reading it correctly..around page 43 of the pdf.

I grew up less than a mile away and have always wanted to try to find a tree to observe such a thing out of respect!
