12. Mendocino

The Mendocino redwood grows on the upper flat of Montgomery Woods State Natural Reserve. It probably still is the tallest tree in the reserve. Like other trees in the reserve the full profile can be noted from the trail and the top is lit up like a giant green lamp in late afternoon when the rest of the canyon is in shade.

The average diameter at 4.5 feet above ground is 10.1 feet.

The latest published height is 368 feet, from a 2013 or earlier measurement.

In 2000 the published height was a little over 367 feet.
