Now that the Los Padres NF has finally opened up in Big Sur, my dad and I were able to go in and confirm a 90.4m (296.7') tree south of Big Sur proper. It is the harshest conditions that a 90m redwood is known to exist. It is in an inland drainage, 1900' elevation, little precipitation, fire-stricken, and hot. Unbelievable that this tree exists here. Of the redwood's 462-mile range, 90m redwoods exist over 428 miles of it! Tree was measured with tripods, prism, and Impulse. It's a beast!
