China Names 102-Meter-Tall Cypress Tree As Tallest In Asia

The Peking University team made the discovery that a 102-meter-tall cypress tree in China has been named the tallest in Asia.

A Chinese research team has announced its discovery of the tallest known tree in Asia in the Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon in China’s Tibet Autonomous Region. The towering timber is taller than the Statue of Liberty.

The Peking University team made the discovery while studying a part of the massive canyon using a lidar drone, which uses pulsed lasers to generate 3-dimensional images. Yarlung Zangbo is the world’s deepest and longest canyon, exceeding even the Grand Canyon in the United States, and has a unique ecosystem due to its high altitude and relative isolation from human influence.

The tree they spotted is an incredible 335 feet (102.3 meters) tall: that’s taller than the Statue of Liberty in New York City, or nearly as long as a football field. It is 9.6 feet (2.9 meters) in diameter, according to Chinese media reports.

The university published a number of photos of the colossal conifer, none of which truly do justice to its size, although one full-length image certainly makes an attempt.
