Perhaps the Arve Big Tree is 84m tall, a distant shot from the current record holder for the world’s tallest flowering plant, the Centurion, which stands 324.8 feet tall. Although some of Australia’s tallest trees can also be seen. In front of me stood a giant that I had never seen in Tasmania or elsewhere in Australia. The surrounding trees at their peak were like skinny babies next to a Yokozuna. The Arve Big Tree weighs 405 tonnes, according to information boards, and is one of the tallest trees in Australia. In contrast, an adult blue whale would only be 190 tonnes.

But Queen Kermandie beat the competition to be called our tallest tree using a formula that takes into account the circumference, height, and crown size of the tree being measured. This tree burned down in the January 2019 fire. The Kermandie Queen, whose volumetric size rivaled the Arve giant, was also severely damaged by the fires, losing large branches the size of typical trees. themselves.
