The world's tallest hardwood tree has been discovered less than five kilometres from Forestry Tasmania's Tahune Airwalk tourism attraction.

Forestry Tasmania staff found the Eucalyptus regnans using an airborne laser scanner (LiDAR), which had been flown over the area in August. This technology is world leading and FT has been developing it to measure tree volume, develop digital terrain maps and to monitor carbon storage.

The LiDAR imagery appeared to show two very tall trees standing side by side.
Laser signals reflected off the canopy of the higher of the two trees showed it was at least 99 metres above the ground.
