Several scientists out of Oregon State University are going to climb the
366' National Geographic Society Tree on 3/24/95. Part of their research 
will involve dropping a 400 tape to the ground to get an accurate height
determination. This tree is neck and neck with the Federation Giant in
Humboldt Redwoods State Park which is 365.2'. There is some dispute to the
height of the National Geographic Tree though so there measurement will
determine the new tallest tree. Michael
