'The President'... 3200 Years in One Photo

3200 Years in One Photo...

It takes a special kind of tree to have a nickname.

Not every tree has a nickname, but 'The President' has earned it. This giant sequoia stands at 247 feet tall, and is estimated to be over 3,200 years old. Imagine, this tree was already 1200 years old when Jesus walked the earth. The trunk of the "President" measures at 27 feet across, with 2 BILLION needles from base to top.
