Photographers spent 32 days to take a picture of this gigantic tree!
This colossal sequoia tree is not only extremely high, but very old as well: it started growing about 3200 years ago! Because of the tremendous size and location amid the forest, it was impossible to take a photo of the whole tree. National Geographic team was the first to do it!

The giant sequoia is 246 ft (75 m) high, and its volume is 45,026 ft3 or 1,275 m3.
