[Rough draft of letter to Los Angeles scholars, June, 1904, continued]2The redwood grows taller than any other tree in the world. In Australia I visited the forests where the Eucalyptus grows tallest - three stories h[igh] - the tallest I could find were about 250 feet high. I measured one near Scotia in Hurn Co. that was 340 feet high, and some may be nearly 400 feet in height. The botanists and tree-lovers I met assured me that as far as known no tree in Australia exceeded 300 feet in height.[JOHN MUIR]03410
