The Location Of The World’s Tallest What, Is Kept Secret?

Teenage Girl
Big Boy
Tree
Giraffe

Answer: Tree

Deep in Redwood National Park in California there is a giant that has been quietly growing since the Middle Ages. Named Hyperion by the researchers that discovered it in 2006, the 379 foot tall Sequoia is the tallest tree on record–taller than both the Statue of Liberty and Big Ben.

Despite the kind of fame that being the tallest tree would normally afford such a magnificent and long-lived specimen, the tree receives few visitors. The researchers were concerned that tourism to the area would upset the local ecosystem or, worse, that people might vandalize or otherwise damage the tree because of its status as the tallest in the world. Outside of a small circle of researchers the location of the tree remains secret.
