Starting up our list of top tallest tree is Atlas, currently the 9th largest single-stem coast redwood and the 2nd largest tree in Atlas Grove.
Amazingly, Atlas is also the 3rd fastest gwoing redwood yet to be measured with approximately 1.18m growth every year.
Humboldt State University forestry professor Stephen C. Sillett named the tree after the Greek Titan Atlas, god of astronomy and navigation.
The main trunk of Atlas splits into three enormous branches 190 ft (58 m) above ground, and the crotch in-between supports a soil mat over 3 ft (1 m) thick.
