The tallest tree in the world


Hyperion (USA), is known to be the tallest tree in the United States of America . It is about 700-800 year old tree coast redwood found in Northern California. The height of the tree is at 115.61 m (379.3 ft) which is really tall, Hyperion is actually bigger than both the Big Ben and the Statue of Liberty. The tree was found on August 25, 2006 by naturalists Chris Atkins and Michael Taylor, they did not want to share the exact location due to interruptions of the tree growing and all. The tree will never be able to grow more than 380ft due to the woodpeckers’ damages on the tree.
