3200 years of history in one picture

Awesome to contemplate the life of this tree!
Thankfully, no loggers took it down, nor forest fires or earthquakes. Just a quiet life in a California forest for all these years

tree1

Not every tree has a nickname, but 'The President' has earned it.
This giant sequoia stands at 247 feet tall & is estimated to be over
3,200 years old. Imagine, this tree was already 700 years old during
the height of ancient Greece's civilization and 1200 years old when
Jesus lived and Rome was well its rule of most of the western world
and points beyond.

The trunk of The President measures at 27 feet across, with 2 BILLION
needles from base to top.

Because of its unbelievable size, this tree has never been photographed in
its entirety, until now. National Geographic photographers have worked
along with scientists to try and create the first photo that shows
the President in all its glory.

They had to climb the tree with pulleys and levers, and took thousands
of photos. Of those, they selected 126 and stitched them together, to get
this incredible portrait of the President. And here it is:

The man standing near the trunk of the tree is a good indicator of the tree's size.

Incredible!
