In Sequoia National Park, somewhere . . . . !!  

Thankfully, no loggers took it down, nor forest fires or earthquakes !!

Just living the quite life in a California forest for all these years …. !!

  

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 700 years old during the height of ancient Greece’s civilization …. and, 1200 years old when Jesus lived and the Roman’s were well into their rule of most of the western world and points beyond . . . . !!  

  

The trunk of The President measures at 27 feet across, with more than 2 BILLION needles from it’s base to the 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 …. They 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 actual size . . . . !!

 Isn’t it Incredible . . . . ??
