Baikusheva Fir Tree 
The Baikusheva Fir Tree is a coniferous tree of the type black fir tree (Pinus heldreichii). It is a real natural phenomena. On one part the black fir tree in Pirin is not presented in large clusters such as the white fir of the white pine tree. The black fir tree is observed only as separate trees in the mountain. On the other part, the tree itself is quite remarkable. With an age of 1300 years, it is the second oldest tree in Bulgaria after the famous 1650 years old oak in the village of Granit (Stara Zagora municipality), which is also one of the oldest in the world. The Baikusheva Fir Tree is approximately 26 meters tall. The circumference of its trunk is 7.8 meters and its diameter is 2.2 meters. It takes more than six men to embrace with arms the trunk of the Baikusheva Fir Tree. It is discovered and fully described in 1897 by the forester Kostadin Baykushev - on the founders of forestry in Bulgaria. The tree bears his name. The godfather of the tree is Yonko Vaptsarov - the father of Nikola Vaptsarov and leader in the following scientific expeditions of Kostadin Baykushev in Pirin in 1909, 1914 and 1915. More than 100 year ago Mr Baykushev determines the age of the tree by using a Pressler drill, especially delivered from Germany. The drill shows that the tree is more than 1200 years old and now a century later - more than 1300 years of age. The Baikusheva Fir Tree is located at 1930 meters altitude in National Park Pirin. This is very close to the mountain chalets Banderitsa and Vihren. The tree may be reached via some of the marked trails from the chalets (4.30 hours on foot). Because the tree is located right net to the asphalt road that connects Bansko with the two chalets, it may also be accessed by car (15 km from Bansko). In 2004 the zone around the tree has been rehabilitated aiming to preserve the tree itself.
