Mario, The 217' footer is growing in an open area that has been clear cut. It may have been driven upward when the forest was intact. The top is now dead so it's not growing any taller. I would say the typical ideal conditions in a montane forest for other conifers would create the tallest incense cedar as well. This being abundant water, good soil and protection from wind. They seem to grow tallest in creek basins, river valleys and the edges of wet meadows. The old, big diameter ones usually have broken tops.
