Tall saguaros with many branching arms can be 175 or 200 years of age! Known as "ancient giants", these cacti eventually die, decay, and drop woody, internal skeletons to the ground.
The oldest saguaros may weigh more than 7 tons and grow taller than a four-story building.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
