With the epiphytic mass etc. these oaks look much like those in Southern Mexico and especially like some of the high mountain evergreen oak forests in Costa Rica whos trees do have rings and reach just over 10,000 feet (3,050 m) in elevation.

And this is likely one of the super-tall C. cashmeriana trees Dr. Sabine Miehe found in Bhutan. Five trees were "crudely" measured at 74-95 m tall with a trunk diameter of 1.08-1.60m at 2m height.

I found the location of the tallest C. cashmeriana trees.

Better satellite imaginery at google. Note that the coordinates are not very exact. The locality does not seem to be in deep wilderness; buildings and fields can be seen nearby. I think we would find the trees with these coordinates but unfortunately independent travel is not possible in Bhutan.

Correction: The photos behind the link above are of much lower and smaller trees in a completely different location.
