The world’s tallest tree, Hyperion, is located in Northern California’s Redwood National Forest. Hyperion is a coast redwood tree that measures 379.1 ft high. National Geographic has a video that will take you to the top of this gigantic tree.

The world’s oldest tree, Old Tijikko, only stands 16 ft tall but has been around for 9,550 years! The tree’s age was determined by carbon-14 dating of its root system underground. While the trees trunk may be replaced overtime by a new one, the original root system remains intack. Old Tijikko grows in a very harsh environment on Fulu Mountain of Dalarna in Sweden.
