200 feet seems verrryyy dubious, but I saw the same height listed on some websites.
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.

Even the Chandelier is only 286 even though the sign says 315 ft. So there is no shortage of exaggeration out there.

Here's a young elongated Gingko just yards from my third floor window. Presently at 90ft it should go much taller. The overlooking gargoyle seems to think so.
