Q.What Is The Oldest Know Catalpa Tree In USA?

Zone 48617, zone 5 | Anonymous added on April 3, 2022 | Answered

I see average lifespan of a catalpa tree is 60yrs. There is one on my great great grandfather’s farm in Clare, Mi that is well over 100 yrs old. Does anyone know how old the oldest catalpa tree in the USA is or may be? These trees always bring happy memories of the farm wherever I see them.

As of 2015, the state Capitol lawn of Michigan claimed the oldest catalpa at 120 to 130 years old. So your relative's tree could be a contender.
