There are 310 foot coast redwoods in Oregon. I have not measured but sure they have been measured.

Mark,
I'm just going by published numbers. I'm sure there are plenty more numbers out there. If you have any or know of any, by all means let me know. The more info on a location, the better, but I know exact locations on exceptional redwoods are secret.

As far as I can tell, the RMDFs in Idaho are the easternmost 200 footers currently. Only the Boogerman white pine has topped 200 feet in the East, and nothing else is close as of now, with tulip hitting 192'.

There are some details under the Oregon section of this BBS.

Oregon has 300 foot redwood trees as well as redwood trees over 20,000 cubic feet trunk volume.

Although specific locations would not be published , the general area would be Chetco River valley - Siskiyou National Forest.

I don't know the tallest measured height, but the tallest LiDAR indicated height is 305 feet.

Mark,

Thanks. It looks like I missed a couple of significant trees. I found a 298' coast and a 212' giant listed. I didn't see the 310' coast.
