Default couple of pics of a BIG tree

thought you might like to see one of these big trees here in western australia.

It stands 61 metres tall and at the top is a lookout the size of a kitchen

I like the step on the second one.

How's this for a useless bit of knowledge. It was discovered recently that the tallest a tree can get is 130 meters, they can't lift water any higher.

unfortunately....because of the "climb" up....there is no way i'd ever get to see the lookout spot.....lol
a little testing for people afraid of heights...

interesting fact ferny

btw...how many feet would 61 meters be?
200+?
