Each colony is its own clone, and all trees in the clone, have identical characteristics and share a single root structure. One clonal colony, named Pando, is considered the heaviest and oldest living organism on Earth, at six million kilograms and perhaps 80,000 years old. AKA Quaking Aspen or Native Aspen.
