The massive woods that makeup California’s redwood wilderness are well-known. However, one spectacular tree shines out especially.
The third-largest tree on the planet in terms of volume is found on the western pitches of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
“The President” is how locals refer to it.
Even though “The President” stands 247 feet (75 meters) in height, it is not the planet’s most towering tree.
The redwood tree is the third biggest on the planet in volume, measuring 45,000 cubic feet (1,278 cubic meters), or around 127,800 milk cartons.
Anyway, the tree’s epoch is arguably its most impressive feature.
It is believed that “The President” is 3,200 years aged.
By 1923, the vast sequoia was given Warren G. Harding’s name.
And “The President” continues to expand exponentially.
Annually, the enormous redwood increases its volume by one m³ of timber.
The enormous tree has never before been successfully captured in a single photograph.
However, a National Geographic crew decided to attempt.
The crew gathered all the required images to integrate them into single, massive photos with the aid of cables.
To somehow get “The President” in a single photo, the crew spent 32 days, and they took 126 images in the process.
The outcome was just Fantastic!
Below is a clip featuring the process that the crew followed to get the incredible photograph:
There are moments when mother nature provides us with something so wonderful that you cannot help but gasp in amazement.
