"Taiwania new record 79.1m
During covid 19 pandemic, we keep exploring our island primary forests. On 24th Aug. 2019, we climbed a Taiwania tree that inspected by Lidar image of 77 m last year. After three hard expeditions, we finally located the tree in June, and tree climbers finished the tap measurement in the window of heavy storm rain on the last Saturday.
We named the tree as TaoShan (peach mountain), the nearest peak (3 km in distance) above 3000 m high. The tree height is 79.1 m, a new record since last September 2019 (the previous height record is 72.9 m). We are pleasured to share this exciting news with fellows of tree lovers.
