Tallest Eucalyptus

Data collected and compiled by Brett Mifsud, Victoria Australia Tree girths taken at 1.5 meters above ground (4.93 feet) (to convert girth to diamter in feet, multiply girth by 1.044) All trees measured by climber deployed tape line and/or laser range finder Direct tape drop accuracy is (+,-) 5 cm / (+,-) 2 inches Laser measurement accuracy is (+,-) 1 m / (+,-) 3.28 feet and usually conservative. All data and most discoveries come from the following sources. Brett Mifsud, Tom Greenwood, Wally Herman, Steve Sillett, Bob Van Pelt, Forestry Tasmania

Note: 
Most of the tallest eucalyptus regans of Victoria province were destroyed by wildfires in early 2009 including Wallaby Creek, Maroondah & O'Shannessy 
Catchments. Recent surveys in these areas report mostly dead standing trees and snags. Most of the 1900, 1905, 1907, 1922 and 1926 regrowth was spared.
