A team of scientist from National Geographic had worked for many days to measure to measure it. They used levers and pulleys to scale the tree.

They found out that the President contains 54,000 cubic feet of bark and wood which makes it the largest tree in the world and after 32 days the team came up with 126 separate photos together to produce a single image of the tree.
