According to the Reno Gazette Journal and the Las Vegas Sun, Nevada’s largest Joshua tree (called the Monument Tree) stands 24-feet tall. This makes it the third-largest Joshua tree in the world. It is estimated to be 700-800 years old.
Even though I haven’t gotten to see the Monument Tree, I enjoyed visiting a little while with some of its smaller family members not far from Goldfield, NV.
The Joshua Tree is a member of the Agave family.
Be well and safe my friends!
