      The tallest tree is also one of the largest living organisms on the planet! Giant Redwoods can reach over 100m tall and are found exclusively in the coastal forests of the western coast of the US. No Monkeys in them though… Unless they got there by accident.

      No monkeys — or bananas! Though I suppose if you arranged for some aggressive monkeys and a crate of bananas to be at the top of a giant redwood, then it’s entirely possible!
