Much of the world remains unexplored. Most people have not seen these areas of the world, including jungles, mountains, oceans, and rivers. However, they should be aware of the tallest trees ever discovered.
The Tallest Trees: Redwoods
The world’s tallest trees are often concentrated in specific regions that have the best growing conditions. The tallest trees of them all are the redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens), which can be found in Redwood National Park, California. These trees grow over 300 feet in height, and, often, the tops cannot be seen from the ground. Of these mighty redwoods, the tallest has been called “Hyperion” at 380.3 feet. Other towering redwoods include “Helios” (374.3 feet), “Icarus” (371.2 feet), and “Daedalus” (363.4 feet).
There are a large number of trees that top 300 feet. Centurion is a 327.5-foot Eucalyptus regnans found in Tasmania, Australia. One of the tallest non-redwood trees on the planet, Doerner Fir, is 327 feet and located in Oregon.
The most impressive are, perhaps, the unnamed giant sequoias. A few of these grow beyond 300 feet, but it is not only their height that makes them stand out from the rest. They are the largest trees in the world by volume and can even be 30 feet across the base. They can be found in California, which is undoubtedly the home of the world’s largest trees.
It is worth bearing in mind that many places are yet to be scouted. It might seem hard to imagine in a world with such advanced technology, but it is a fact. For example, Vale do Javari in Brazil is said to be home to 14 indigenous tribes under a no-contact policy. Travel is dangerous in this region, due to wild animals (mosquitos, snakes, jaguars, and piranhas), floods, and a lack of infrastructure. So, there could be a tree hiding somewhere in remote forests that could rival the Californian redwoods.
