Extreme Trees

Classifying the world’s tallest, thickest, biggest, and oldest trees can be an extreme challenge. For the National Geographic “Extreme Trees” poster, featured in several of the magazine’s international editions, we took a look at what counts when measuring. Trees grow, limbs fall, ways of measuring change, and new trees are discovered, so figuring out which trees to highlight wasn’t easy.

    I need a larger monitor for this one.

  2. Is there a way to get a print out of this poster? How would I be able to do that? I would really like to hang this up in my room.
