A description about the Tallest tree and the Oldest tree.

Tallest tree and the oldest tree

Tallest Tree
The world's tallest tree is called the Stratosphere Giant. It grows in the Rockefeller Forest, Humboldt Redwoods State Park, California. At 112.32m, this redwood is almost three times the height of the Statue of Liberty in New York. Most of the Britain's tallest trees are in Scotland: a Douglas fir growing in Tayside, Scotland, is the record-holder at 64.5m.

Oldest Trees
The Bristlecone pines in California and Nevada, USA, are almost 5,000 years old and were long believed to be the oldest trees. Latest research suggests that creosote bushes in the USA's Mojave Desert may be even older - some of these plants began life nearly 12,000 years ago.
