Carol, you know I would never doubt you..but I DO have WAY TOO MUCH TIME on my hands...so I thought..I would look a couple of things up on the ol' Google...

"e-The tallest living tree stands at 112 meters (367 feet, 6 in.), or five stories higher than the Statue of Liberty. It is a Mendocino Tree, a coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) found at Montgomery State Reserve near Ukiah, California, USA. It is estimated to be over 1000 years old. The tree was last measured in September 1998, and was also found to have a diameter of 3.14 m. (10 ft. 4 in.). It was declared the tallest tree in 1996.

Although this redwood is currently the tallest tree, it is not the tallest tree in history. A Eucalyptus regnans at Mt. Baw Baw, Victoria, Australia, is believed to have measured 143 m. (470 ft.) in 1885. Formerly, another Australian eucalyptus, at Watts River, Victoria, almost certainly had been over 150 m. (492 ft.) tall.-quote&


That would be REAL close to 50 stories...

Those eucalyptus tree figures have never been confirmed, unfortunately.

There are a lot of eucalyptus trees in Griffith Park. I can't imagine those things getting bigger than 100 feet, let alone nearly 500!
