This 3,200-Year-Old Tree Is So Big, It’s Never Been Captured In A Single Photograph… Until Now

The President is the second largest known tree in the world, standing at 247 feet tall and still growing. It’s located in the Sequoia National Park and is 3,200 years old.

‘We know that there are trees that have bigger trunks, but when you add up all of the wood beside the main trunk – all of the limbs, all of the branches, all of the bio-mass above the ground – this tree is likely the biggest,’ said Steve Sillett from Humboldt State University.

The General Sherman is the largest tree, standing 275 feet.

This video shows how magnificent the President really is.

I’ve seen this tree myself, and when you look up there’s no ending. It was truly exhilarating to stand next to, and there’s nothing quite like a walk in the forest surrounded by Sequoias. It’s an experience like no other. Share this with your friends and family, these trees deserve to be admired.
