  1. these are some impressive trees! check these ones out also: ‘http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eucalyptus_regnans’ ‘The Ferguson Tree’

  2. These are not pictures the actual trees, and in most cases these photos are not even of the proper species. Most of the photos are of Giant Sequioa trees (latin: Sequoiadendron giganteum) which are an entirely different species from the Redwood trees that this article is about. Giant Sequioas are the largest (volume) trees in the world, while Redwoods are the tallest.

  3. The pictures are gorgeous. I wonder if I could receive the picture of Hyperion by email. I mean in a high quality. I am writing a book introducing the world records of the plants.
