Which is the tallest tree in the world?

Give up?

It’s believed that a California Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) named Hyperion standing at a whopping 379. 1 feet tall in California’s Humboldt Redwoods State Park holds this record. Hyperion is over nine feet taller than the previous record holder, the 370.5-foot-tall Stratosphere Giant.

Hyperion is not only the tallest tree, but also the world’s tallest living thing.
