California’s redwood forests are known for their gigantic trees, but one magnificent tree in particular really stands out.
On the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains stands the world’s third largest tree in terms of volume.
“The President” is far from being the world’s tallest tree, but still, it measures 247 feet (75 m) tall.
“The President” is estimated to be about 3,200 years old.
And “The President” is still growing at breakneck speed.
No one had ever managed to capture the huge tree in one image before.
It took 32 days and 126 pictures to get “The President” in one image.
Sometimes nature offers up something so amazing, you have no choice but to gasp in awe.
“The President” is a shining example of how important it is to take care of our land and our forests.
I really hope this tree will stand at least another 3,000 years in the future. Share this article if you agree!
