Is the tallest tree in the world in Mendocino County?


Between 1996 and 2000, the “Mendocino Tree” was thought to be the tallest tree in the world, but that crown was toppled when a number of taller trees were discovered in Humboldt County. The Mendocino Tree still grows in the old-growth redwood groves in Montgomery Woods, but its precise location is kept secret! Enjoy a walk along the boardwalks in the 1,300+ acre park – boardwalks protect the fragile forest floor from damage – and marvel at the giant, living beings. In springtime, Montgomery Creek runs through the park, and wild iris and trillium bloom along the banks.
