Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) > Hyperion 379.6 ft. (115.7 m) - tallest tree in the world (2013), California. This is the only top to bottom view that exists, because it was taken during winter when leaves were off other trees in front. Shot in January during an unusual gap in weather allowing access to the tree. Photo and text by M. D.
