‘The Baron’, Girth 114 feet, height 466 ft, Age 3700 years, 1888 - 1889
Scope and Contents
207 x 157 mm. A view showing the base of this large tree, with two figures standing beside it. Presumably the tree is some kind of eucalypt, although the dimensions appear to be wildly exaggerated: ‘The Australian Encyclopaedia’ gives 375 feet as the highest certified tree found in Australia, and the other measurements would appear to be equally dubious.
- 1888 - 1889
