Came across this interesting link that keeps tabs on old trees: http://www.ldeo.columbia.edu/~adk/oldlisteast/

It appears that the blackgum is the oldest broadleaf in the states.

Lucas,

Neil (Dr. Neil Pederson) now works at Harvard Forest in Petersham, MA. I've known him since 1993. He has been a rising star in the world of dendrochronology for years. On April 25th, Ray Asselin and I will visit with the Harvard Forest scientists to get their assistance on dating black birch cores we have taken on Mount Tom and hopefully to discuss a database project where both Neil's tree ages and our tree measurements would find a serious home. There is a chance that in the future, American Forests could be the home of NTS data. Lots of work to do.
