NR8671 : The Second-tallest Tree?

The Second-tallest Tree?
The Second-tallest Tree?
I was informed that this Sequoiadendron giganteum is the second-tallest tree in Scotland, at 175.5 feet (54 metres). Or at least that, when measured with the latest hi-tech equipment a couple of years ago, it was the second-tallest. Unfortunately its rivals continue to grow, and its status, such as it is, is continually threatened, just as it threatens its taller competitor. Sadly, however, this information is at variance with sundry reports in the media, for example LinkExternal link , but it is nevertheless a very impressive specimen.
