Look at this magnificent tree!

Meet the ‘President’. Judged on mass, the ‘President’ is ‘likely the biggest’ tree on the planet.The giant sequoia tree in California’s Sequoia National Park is 3,200 years old, has 2 billion leaves and stands 247 feet (74 metres) tall.

The portrait of the giant tree, taken by National Geographic, is actually a mosaic, made up of 126 photographs in order to capture the stunning full-length shot.
