"January 2009, I located Hyperion Redwood, the tallest known tree in the world: 379.1 feet tall.Hyperion redwood was found September 8, 2006, by Chris Atkins and Michael Taylor, naturalists who explore California coast redwoods - in a remote part of Redwood National Park. Preliminary measurement was done with a professional quality laser rangefinder. In September 2006, Dr. Steve Sillett climbed Hyperion for a tape drop measurement, that included reaching the tip with a telescopic measuring tool. Numbers from the tape and telescopic device were added together - filmed by National Geographic"
