Probably exaggerated the way the Shrine Tree drive through redwood people put 275 ft. on the sign and people "parrot" that number even though it's barely 110 ft. tall.ryandallas wrote:From "The Meaning of Trees", by Fred Hageneder:
"The ginkgo tree at Yon Mun Temple near Seoul, South Korea is 200 ft. tall and said to be 1,100 years old."
200 feet seems verrryyy dubious, but I saw the same height listed on some websites.
Even the Chandelier is only 286 even though the sign says 315 ft. So there is no shortage of exaggeration out there.
