Media Release 10-12-2018

A momentous milestone was surpassed last week when two Tasmanians, Steven Pearce from The Tree Projects and Yoav Daniel Bar-Ness from Giant Tree Expeditions, used state of art laser range-finders to remeasure Australia's tallest tree, named Centurion.

They found that the tree now measures 100.5 metres. Tasmania now joins Northern California in holding the only trees over 100m in height on the planet.

We have prepared a Field Report that details our methodology which uses a standardised practice for measuring tree height. This includes much work to establish a median ground level between the upslope and downslope side of the tree.
