This 3200 year old tree is so big it’s never been captured in a single image: until now!

‘The President’ doesn’t have a nickname for just any old reason. This giant sequoia, one of the largest trees in the world, stands 75.3m tall, 8.2m wide, measures 1,274.3 cubic metres in volume, and is an estimated 3,200 years old. And it’s never been completely photographed – until a tree-climbing scientist got involved. Behold, 32 days of work to take 126 individual photos, stitched together to create one amazing image.

Michael “Nick” Nichols worked on the image for National Geographic – with the tree representing 110 generations of human life.
