The tallest tree in the world I also believe is/was a Eucalyptus
in Australia. The tallest I have removed in CA was 157' being
a Camaldulensis. The largest Trunk I removed of this genus was
78" at legal dbh located in Lakewood CA. and only about 90' tall,
it was Globulus. The largest CA. wind row trees I have seen were
near Salinas and the Largest street trees of this genus were in
Riverside CA.

The largest species in the world that I removed made another
the largest in the world. The 1'st I climbed the 2'nd then
the largest blew over and was picked up with a 16 ton stinger
and Cat 910. Both Pinus Torreyana.
1. Was in Pasadena CA.
2. Was in Beverly Hills CA.

I don't mind if videos are posted without my name.

Trail of the 100 giants has some fun ones to climb. None
of the Giganteum there are 400' and I know of no Sempervirens
being 400'.

This one is from Red Rock Nv. I believe it fell over after the heavy snow of last year. So it became a Banzai tree in a manner of speaking.

Sometimes when they are not a beautiful tree they still have something to give....

Nef: the bonsai trees except for the first one are part of the permanent collection of Huntington. I didn't write down any info on the trees - sorry.





This one is a dead tree some how wedged between rocks in the last 10 feet of it's base and sticking out almost impossibly to where you can touch it on route:
