Journey to the tree made in 1881. – in the place where there is no time

530 cubic meters, age – 700-800 years.
TOаждый год Гиперион подрастает на 2,5 сантиметра. In comparison with
other very large trees, this figure is not too high.
This fact scientists explain the fact that the upper part of the trunk was
damaged by woodpeckers, making Hyperion’s growth slower.
TOак правило, очень высокие деревья растут в центральной части
valleys, where water is contained in the greatest amount (for example,
