About Us

Welcome to this website which celebrates Victoria’s Giant Trees, the world’s biggest hardwoods, and tallest flowering plants. This site provides information about the tallest and most massive trees in Victoria.

This site provides information about giant trees in Victoria. It is managed by Forestry Victoria and the Giant Trees Consultative Committee, a body established to provide independent advice on the protection, management and promotion of Giant Trees.

Giant trees are recognised worldwide for their cultural significance and their ability to inspire awe and wonder.

Victoria has the right combination of environmental factors – climate, soils and fire regime – to foster the growth of trees to massive height and girth. Around the globe, all of the areas which produce big trees have similar climates.

Victoria’s giant trees are the tallest hardwoods in the world!
