See the Tallest Trees in the world. (Photos)

God is mighty and powerful in the creation of living an non-living things. Everything about his creation is perfect and excellent.

This article presents to you the tallest tree in the world.

The tallest trees in the world are redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens), which tower above the ground in California. These trees can easily reach heights of 300 feet (91 meters).

To exploreto you some idea about its massive size, that’s twice the height of the Statue of Liberty, minus the foundation. But the Giant lost its status when two naturalists, Chris Atkins and Michael Taylor, stumbled upon group of trees in California’s Redwood National Park that were taller than any they’d ever seen before. They made preliminary measurements using professional laser equipment based on goniometry, and found not one, not two, but three  trees that were taller than the Stratosphere Giant.

Many people don’t know that Hyperion is still around today by sheer luck. Only a few hundred feet from its base is a clearcut dating back to the 70’s. Clearcutting is a forestry practice in which all trees in an area are logged and the entire area is devastated.
