So the tree is not 9550 orbital years old, but 9550 atomic years old. Even that may be unreliable because of the problems that are inherent in radio-carbon dating. So the oldest living tree is still the bristlecone pine. The article states that: "Trees much older than 9,550 years would be impossible in Sweden, because ice sheets covered the country until the end of the last Ice Age around 11,000 years ago, Kullman noted." Since the ice-age ended around 2400-2500 BC in actual orbital time, these Norway spruces are no older than that.
