Hello Jeroen, there is no height given on the link but I have just discovered about 1 minute ago that if you click on the green lettering after 'specimen', at least with this tree, the height and girth information is there. You learn something new every day.

A great shame about the trees snapping off, tragic really for trees of this height and probable age. It will probably be that yet more trees will snap in the strong winds as even if the forestry service replant, it will be years and years before the shelter returns and in that time the Sequoiadendrons will have increased in height as well. The Sonian Forest looks like a wonderful place for a tree lover to visit. I am going to have a look later as to where exactly it is, I have to admit that I am not familiar with Belgium other than with the great motor racing circuit at Spa Franchorchamps.

Hi, this group of giant sequoias are all between 42 and 47m high.

They are surrounded by grand firs, sitka spruces and larks all reaching 40m or more. Two years ago, the forest service clearcutted part of the hill creating a huge gap in front of the remaining sequoias. The trees that were groing in close planting are now suddenly exposed to strong winds with tragic results. One tree broke in the winter of 2010-2011 and another one this year. A sad story!

Hello Rob,

Wy do you ask this, as you can see at the page on these trees that the measured trees are between 43 and 47 m? Funny is that they are about as tall as the tallest beeches in the forest, just one Sequoiadendron is a bit taller than the tallest beeches, wich we measured as 45 - 45.65 m. Interesting to see if they are going to be much taller still and really will stand out above this already very tall beechforest.

Hello Marc, thank you for posting this photo. How tall are these Sequoiadendrons, difficult to tell without anything in the photo for size reference? The Sonian Forest has some magnificent trees growing in it.

I notice in the photo above a broken trunk on the left of the photo and another one on the right, have these trees snapped, broken off in strong winds or was/is there evidence of charring, possible lightning strike?

This is the highest giant sequoia in Belgium.
