The tallest tree in Africa

So apparently the tallest tree on the continent of Africa is hidden in a remote valley on Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. Sort of an ironic place, don’t you think? Anyway, it was discovered twenty years ago but it was the location that kept it’s true height from being know until recently.

You can read about it in the article entitled “Africa’s tallest tree discovered towering on continent’s highest mountain: Giant has been hiding for decades in Mount Kilimanjaro valley” by Bryan Nelson over at the Mother Nature Network. Who Knew!?
