3200 YEARS IN ONE PHOTOGRAPH

VIEW TIME: 1.30 MINS

Not every tree has a nickname, but ‘The President’ has earned it.

This giant sequoia stands at 247 feet  tall, and is estimated to be over 3,200 years old. Imagine, this tree was already 1200 years old when Jesus walked the earth.

Because of its unbelievable size, this tree has never been photographed in its entirety.

Until now.

A team of 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.

Incredible, is it not?
