'On a remote and windswept island some 700km south of New Zealand, grows the
world's loneliest tree.
Green, bushy, large — as trees go, it's pretty unremarkable.
Sitting in the middle of the permanently uninhabited subantarctic Campbell
Island, the nine-metre-tall Sitka spruce is 250 kilometres away from its
closest companion. In fact, it is the only tree on the island.
The 100-year-old pine has been recognised by the Guinness World Records as the
"most remote tree in the world".
However, technically, this lonely tree should not be here.
Its very existence is now helping to advance groundbreaking climate change
