Continuing my tree-themed posts, I have researched the tallest tree. It is called ‘Hyperion’, and is a California Redwood in the Redwood National Park.
It is 600 years old, and stands 380 feet tall. (116 metres)
To give you come idea of how tall that is, it is taller than the Statue of Liberty, taller than Big Ben in London, and more than twice as high as the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
So the world’s oldest tree and the world’s tallest tree are both to be found in the American state of California.
