A 40,000-Year-Old Tree Would Be Evidence Of A Reversal Of The Earth's Magnetic Field

The trees are magnificent. They have a soul, they bleed, they communicate with each other. In their rings they can record apocalyptic events that occur on Earth, they also sometimes record devastating events like drought, hurricanes and even space explosions.

Recently, in Ngawha, in the north of New Zealand, people discovered an old tree on a beach. The giant Agathis australis, also known as Maori Kauri. After scientific research, it was 65 feet long and 8 feet wide. It appears that the trunk contained a trace of the inversion of the Earth’s magnetic field in its rings. The tree was alive about 40,000 years ago and lasted about 1,500 years.
Once, about forty-two thousand years ago, when the Earth’s magnetic field almost shifted – the north and south poles moved closer together and completely changed their position.

In 1952, thanks to Professor Roy McGregor of Auckland University College, the Waipoua Sanctuary was created under the protection of the Department of Conservation to protect as many trees as possible. New Zealand’s largest kauri tree resides there. Measuring almost 169 feet tall and approximately 45 feet wide. He resisted for 1,500 years. During the 19th and 20th centuries, 3,000 dams were built in New Zealand with Kauri timber mainly in the Waitākere Ranges, Hokianga and the Coromandel Peninsula.
