Douglas fir crowned Britain's tallest tree; Argyll, Scotland, UK; 2/26/09

Pictured: The 210ft Stronardron Douglas fir that's been crowned ...Daily Mail - UK
It is the height of 15 double decker buses stacked on top of each other and would tower 40ft over Nelson's Column.
This colossal tree - believed to be between 100 to 150 years old - was yesterday named the tallest in Britain.
The Stronardron Douglas Fir already measures 209ft but experts believe there is plenty of growth left in her yet.
