Tallest Douglas Fir

(Pseudotsuga menziesii)

Diameters are taken at breast height (4.5 feet or 1.37 meters) above average ground level of tree. Heights are determined by the vertical distance from the top of tree, living or dead, to the average ground level of tree. Height measurements were obtained with either climber deployed tapeline, Impulse 200 LR or Trupulse 200 laser range finder. Accuracy is (+,-) 2 inches (.025 meters) or better unless stated as preliminary in which case the accuratcy is generally (+,-) 1 foot. Most trees discovered and/or with data collected and provided by Steve Sillett, Chris Atkins, Bill Price, Brian French, Michael Taylor, Scott Altenhoff, Mike Hanuschick, Mario Vaden & Ron Hildebrant.

Memnon 332, Oregon's 4th tallest tree. Brummett Fir (center) was once over 100m tall. Mineral Tree (right) had a diameter over 15' and height of 393'
