Tallest Trees:

Researchers have been complaining about the tallest trees. Some say the tallest trees were around 130 m (430 ft), and even 150 m (490 ft) high. As there isn’t a record of them we consider the tallest trees the ones we can measure nowadays:

  1. Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens): 115.56 m(379.1 ft), Hyperion, Redwood National Park, California, United States
  2. Australian Mountain-ash (Eucalyptus regnans): 99.6 m (327 ft), south of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
  3. Coast Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii): 99.4 m (326 ft), Brummit Creek, Coos County, Oregon, United States
  4. Sitka Spruce (Picea sitchensis): 96.7 m (317 ft), Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, California, United States
  5. Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum): 94.9 m (311 ft), Redwood Mountain Grove, Kings Canyon National Park, California, United States
