      ... park was created way too late to save many of the trees it was supposed to. And the decision later to expand the borders of the park in the 70's led to frantic wholesale clearcut logging of the trees before it became too late for the logging companies to get the money out of the hills. Just recently it was discovered that the tallest tree so far (379ft !! ) and named Hyperion was ...
