  • Tarkine
    In Australia, the Tarkine Forest houses 3,000-year-old pine trees along with some Tasmanian devils. The temperate rainforest, the second-largest on earth, looks like a step back in time, more suitable for dinosaurs than adventurous travelers. © Houani | Dreamstime.com

    The Pando Aspen Grove in Utah is unique because it behaves like a single organism. Scientists guess the forest — all interconnected via one root system — is up to 1 million years old. © Clifton Smith | Dreamstime.com
  • Kakamega
    Kakamega Forest in Kenya was at one time the largest old-growth forest in the world, at a whopping 2 million years old. Unfortunately, this rainforest diminished greatly over the last few decades. Now it covers a mere 90 square miles. © Ivkuzmin | Dreamstime.com
