Scientists studying the impact of climate change on sequoias and coastal redwoods in California have announced that “The President” – a 3,200 year old, 224-foot giant sequoia – is now the world’s number 2 largest tree.

“I consider it to be the greatest tree in all of the mountains of the world,” Stephen Sillett, whose redwood team spent 32-days dangling from ropes on The President, told MSNBC.

For it’s December issue, NatGeo sent a crew led by Michael “Nick” Nichols to photograph the massive tree – and the short video below, particularly with the blowing snow, is stunning to say the least.

Another wild stat about The President – it adds one cubic meter of wood a year during its short six-month growing season; making it (even at thousands of years old) one of the fastest growing trees in the world. Amazing.
