National Geographic magazine’s December cover story includes the remarkable findings of League scientists who are studying how redwoods can survive sweeping environmental changes. The feature includes incredible photos, such as a portrait of a 3,200-year-old giant sequoia. Research team members helped National Geographic capture these images, and the organization told us about the experience. Photo courtesy of National Geographic.
