Cây Đại Cổ Thụ 3.200 Tuổi...

Cây tùng đại cổ thụ 3.200 tuổi, có nghĩa 1.200 năm trước Chúa Jésus giáng sinh. Cây cao 247 feet, vòng thân 27 feet nên không thể chụp hình toàn cây mà phải chụp cả ngàn tấm, sau đó chọn ra được 126 tấm rồi dán lại thành bức hình này. Vì cây tùng này quá to cao nên có danh xưng đặc biệt (nickname) là Cây Tổng Thống (The President)....

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.

Because of its unbelievable size, this tree has never been photographed in its entirety. Until now. A team of National Geographic photographers have worked along with scientists to try and create the first photo that shows the president in all its glory.

They had to climb the tree with pulleys and levers, and took thousands of photos.

 Of those, they selected 126 and stitched them together, to get this incredible portrait of the President.

And here it is:

Incredible, is it not ?
