You may think you’ve seen big trees, but until you see “The President”, you’ll have no idea what “BIG” means. We can talk diameter and we can talk height, but when numbers are this huge you start to lose grasp with what they represent. Let’s put it this way… When Jesus walked the Earth this tree was already 1200 years old.

Until recently it was impossible to take a photo of it because you’d have to stand so far away the forest would obstruct the view, but thanks to this rig the photographers of National Geographic made a composite photo out of dozens little photos and it’s breathtaking.
