Immortality may be Humanity's oldest dream but this phenomenal  Olive tree may have achieved it! Planted between two Geometric era cemeteries in Ano Gouves, western Crete, with its heartwood long gone and with a hollow trunk, it still produces Homer's "liquid gold" 3,000 or possibly 4,000 years later! Her branches were used to make wreaths for the Athens 2004 Olympics. It has witnessed a series of invaders from Minoan times to silly tourists ignoring signs and invading her trunk for a selfie! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olive_tree_of_Vouves
