Did you know that there are more trees on Earth than there are stars in the galaxy? There’s about 3 trillion of trees, which exceeds the 100 billion stars in the Milky Way. But those trees appear insignificant next to the Presidential Tree, which is hailed as the biggest tree in all the world.
This legendary tree can be found in the Sequoia National Park, among its many brothers who are also dated to be thousand years old. The Presidential Tree can be found in a remote area in Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.
According to the experts who examined it, the gigantic tree is estimated to be 3,200 years old today. It measures a towering height of 247 feet which makes it incredibly impossible to capture in a single photograph.
One of the researchers named Steve Sillett claimed that although the Presidential Tree is not the largest by height, its mass can account for its height:
“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.”
The first ever known photo that captured the massive photo is actually a series of image that was tied together to create a mosaic. The photo was taken by National Geographic and it took them almost 33 days to capture.
The world has a lot of amazing places that are just waiting to be explored. Some of these amazing places will just make you stop and stare in awe at these creations of nature.
