MALAYSIA'S OLDEST RUBBER TREE - KUALA KANGSAR

Just in front of the Kuala Kangsar District Office at the intersection of Jalan Tun Abdul Razak and Jalan Raja Chulan, an imposing, old rubber tree can be seen in a section of the office compound. Believed to be the oldest rubber tree in Malaysia, it was an offshoot of the original nine. This century-old tree is still producing.
