Mölnbackagranen, som började växa i slutet av 1800-talet, besegrades till slut av sin naturliga fiende, granbarkborren.

Det rörde sig av en gran av typen picea abies på latin eller Norwegian Spruce på engelska.

Det var medlemmar från webbsajten Skogsforum.se som hittade rekordgranen i Mölnbacka i oktober 2018.

Att granen hittades i just Värmland var ingen slump. Där finns precis de förutsättningar som krävs för att granar ska trivas extra bra. Långa sluttningar med vatten som sipprar utför hela tiden. Många av sluttningarna ligger på hyperitberg där mineralen hyperit berikar skogsmarken. Värmland ligger också tillräckligt långt söderut i landet för att ha en lång växtsäsong.
