all of these were taken from "TodayiLearned" of reddit....
so these are true, in reddit they back up the information with links

Yes. Firstly, Hyperion is in North Carolina, but yes, it exact location is unknown.
Secondly, it is not the largest tree. It is not even the largest redwood. That would be the Lost Monarch, also in North Carolina.
The Prince one is also true apparently. It's not on youtube; its on Dailymotion though.

His journey started with...somebody else do it.

The story lacks, depth. I feel like I should have a sidekick of some kind. Captain Planet or maybe even that duck that kills people instead of people killing people

Otterbots then came across Captain Planet, who vigorously molested-Erm...Told Otterbots he would accompany him on his quest to find the world's largest tree.
User avatar #361 to #343 - puredeliciousness (09/28/2012) [-]
And so it was that they began their journey, debating on where to begin looking for such a tree. They decided to make their first stop in Africa, figuring that no one could afford an axe to cut down such a mighty tree. They journeyed far and wide, stole many goodies from random African huts, riding elephants when they tired of walking. But alas, their search ended without finding the great tree. They then went to...

someone else go now

And so our heroes travel bravely to Pewter city to fight the ever allusive Pewter city Gym. With Otterbots traveling and training hard.

Why, but of course science.
Just check my buddy Wicked Dan here hard at work, just give him a chainsaw microscope and he won't put it down until there's no more science left!

it is in a giant redwood forest, if of you think tallest as in base to tip then it very well may not be the 'highest' tree in a forest on level ground, not to mention being surrounded by redwoods of comparable height.

Hyperion, the tree in a remote area of the Red Wood National Park in Northern California. Yeah no can't say I have the faintest idea of where it is.

Don't you think it would be a little difficult to hide the tallest tree in the world?
who comes up with this ****
User avatar #282 to #279 - navestotwo (09/27/2012) [-]
Well all trees could be a little bigger than the other, but unless you took it to the measurements, you wouldn't be able to tell visually.
Maybe the tallest tree in a forest, but not the WHOLE ******* world.

From the Hyperion wikipedia page:   
   
"Hyperion is the name of a coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) in Northern California"   
   
"The tree was verified as standing 115.55 metres (379.1 ft) tall by Stephen Sillett. The tree was found in a remote area of Redwood National and State Parks purchased in 1978."

"it's exact location in the park has not been reviled to the public"
User avatar #95 to #92 - hadrian (09/27/2012) [-]
...but if it's the tallest tree in the world, it's going to be pretty ******* obvious where it is in the park.
#311 to #95 - anon (09/27/2012) [-]
Its probably 7 inches taller than all other trees surrounding it.
Bam, Tallest tree. Want to measure each one?
User avatar #100 to #85 - writeroftoast (09/27/2012) [-]
What you don't understand is that the terrain in the redwood forests is not level, at all. Steve Sillett (who is a professor at Humboldt State and teaches a forestry/tree-climbing class there, and who has had sex in a hammock at the top of a redwood, and is generally badass) had to use several complex measuring devices developed by friends to accurately measure the tops the tallest trees, because it's near impossible to tell from the ground.

Sure, it's possible to notice that one or two trees seems to be pretty tall and large, but it's not something super obvious that you can just eyeball. Also, redwood forests are huge and oftentimes Sillett had to walk through areas with no trail for hours before he came across the tallest trees.

I go to UC Santa Cruz, which is in the middle of a redwood forest, and I'd be hard-pressed to pick out the largest tree. I walk over a bridge every day that, though it's at the same level as the middles or tops of the trees, doesn't seem as high because the terrain is so hilly.

tl;dr Read "The Wild Trees" by Richard Preston, it has the entire story of Sillett and Hyperion.

If your comment was too long for some people to read, then why would you suggest having them read a book instead?
