During the summer of 2006, an adventurous team of scientists discovered not one but three new trees in Redwood National & State Parks that shatter the record for the world's tallest tree. Read the complete story in the San Francisco Chronicle!
In late 2006, naturalists discovered a new tall tree, dubbed Hyperion. It is in the Redwood National Park in Humboldt County (near the original Tall Tree that was discovered in the 1960s) in an undisclosed location. It rises to 379.1 feet, which is nearly six stories taller than the Statue of Liberty!
