This 3,200 Year-Old Tree Is So Massive… It Took 126 Photos To Capture It. My Jaw Dropped…

The President is the world’s 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.
