Big tree of the Iran - Gilan - Masouleh

- How to determine the world's largest tree...
Determining the world's largest tree is not as straightforward as you might think. It is a combination of three measurements. One is height, another width of the crown of its branches and the last is the circumference of the trunk of the tree. A number is calculated from these three measurements to determine the largest. The tallest tree does not automatically claim the title. However, local communities can and often do erroneously claim the status of 'largest' on any one of these three measurements so you often get conflicting claims.

Hello Mohamad,
The "Big" tree of Iran looks very large alright..
Good POV and framing.
Great notes on how one determines this often disputed claim to fame :)
I did a B&W conversion for another look in the workshop.
I see WS is disabled..

Good try.
