Probably the oldest olive tree of the world is in Al Walaja village of Bethlehem district.
Two diferent groups of Japanese and European experts dated Al Badawi (The Big One), as the Palestinians calls it, between 4,000 and 5,000 years old, making it the oldest olive tree in the world.
Al Badawi currently is in danger, as the Israeli government is building the Wall arround this village, which once the Wall is finished will be completely surrounded by it.
