The 93m figure is from the averaged ground level. 95.2 low side and 90.8 high side measurements from a climber deployed tape line.
Now that we know there are 300 ft class trees in Borneo, one has to wonder what was cut down in the past, and how much above 300' did they get ?

I hope they will measure (some of) the other 49 trees over 90 m according to LiDAR. Interesting to see which species they are.
