      I don’t know a way of determining age without cutting it.
      Anybody knows?

      Counting age rings is the only way I think…

      Good. As much as I remember, there are some radioactivity techniques too. But where to apply them? at your kitchen? 🙂

      You don’t have to cut it down, is there a way to take like a sample by cutting a small piece out?

      actually you may be on to something there mith. There is a technique known as ‘boring’ (i think) that involves making a hole in the tree.

      here is a link for more info (thank google!)

      But isn’t that’s quite impossible to do without harming the tree? 😕
