To most earthlings a "tall" tree is 75 to 100 ft. Thousands of Douglas firs on the Olympic Peninsula don't even branch that near to the ground! Presently, the tallest tree known in the whole Northwest is a 326 ft fir.
Olympic National Park and Forest on the Olympic Peninsula in the northwest corner of Washington State (the Evergreen State) truly is the land of the giants. Unless you see them in person and stand next to one of these mammoth trees, it's hard to imagine trees this huge. Standing next to a tree that is 159 feet tall with a circumference of 63 feet is truly a humbling experience.
