Sequoia sempervirens

Where Is the Tallest Tree in the World?

As of 2015, the world's tallest tree is "Hyperion," located in Redwood National Park, in California. It was discovered in 2006 by hikers Chris Atkins and Michael Taylor. The tree is a coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) and it is 379 feet 4 inches (115.62 meters) tall. The exact location of the Hyperion is not known, however. Scientists are keeping the location of Hyperion secret in order to protect it.


Coast redwoods grow mostly in California and California's forests and state parks are believed to be home to the largest trees in the world. Another redwood, Del Norte Titan, is located in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park in California. This tree is so large that if the tree were to be cut into planks, it could build 120 houses.

More about trees and plants:

•Plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen during the day, and absorb oxygen and release carbon dioxide at night. They release far more oxygen than they absorb.

•The origin of the word "tree" is "tre" from Old English. "Forest" comes from the old French word "foresta" which meant "woodland."

•Two mature trees produce enough oxygen to fulfill the annual oxygen needs of four people.

Curved Lines Produce More 

Quote
Why does a tree not produce a leaf that's square?

 It's to maximize the edge. You will get more production out of a curved line than a straight line.

Permaculture is fascinating in that it teaches us to look at nature's non- linear systems, and understand the basic underlying patterns of natural phenomena.

In the example of an oak leaf we find a pattern that allows for maximum accessibility and minimum amount of path. Maximum edge means maximum use of pattern.

Planting in circles instead of rows is a practical use of this concept.

Richard Evans Schultes (1915-2001)

Richard Evans Schultes (1915-2001) was probably the greatest explorer of the Amazon, and regarded among anthropologists and seekers alike as the “father of ethnobotany.”

Taking what was meant to be a short leave from Harvard in 1941, he surveyed the Amazon basin almost continuously for twelve years, during which time he lived among two dozen different Indian tribes, mapped rivers, secretly sought sources of rubber for the US government during WWII, and collected and classified 30,000 botanical specimens, including 2,000 new medicinal plants.

During this interview conducted on December 15, 1990, he looked back on his expeditions to the Amazon.

What Plants Talk About (Full Documentary)

Published on Feb 28, 2014

When we think about plants, we don't often associate a term like "behavior" with them, but experimental plant ecologist JC Cahill wants to change that. The University of Alberta professor maintains that plants do behave and lead anything but solitary and sedentary lives. What Plants Talk About teaches us all that plants are smarter and much more interactive than we thought!
