It took three years of planning, five expeditions and a two-week trek through dense jungle, for scientists to reach the tallest tree ever found in the Amazon Rainforest, a towering specimen, the size of a 25-storey building.

The giant tree, whose top juts out high above the canopy in the Iratapuru River Nature Reserve in northern Brazil, is an angelim vermelho wuth scientific name Dinizia Excelsa, measuring 88.5 meters or 290 feet tall and 9.9 meters or around 32 feet, is the biggest ever identified in the Amazon, scientists say.
