Hyperion

Deep in California’s Redwood National Park stands a monster of a tree named Hyperion. Of the estimated 3 trillion trees on the planet, Hyperion is widely believed to be the tallest. Standing at an impressive 380 feet, the coastal redwood is more than twice the size of the Statue of Liberty (minus the pedestal). Amazingly, this forest giant wasn’t discovered until the mid-2000s, and its exact location is kept under wraps to protect the tree.

The Answer: The correct answer is Hyperion.
