The coast redwood is the tallest known tree in modern times.

The mountain ash(Eucalyptus regnans) in Australia was taller, but tallest living now only 326'. Several exceptionally large specimens of coast redwood from the past, exceeded General Sherman(largest giant sequoia) in volume as well.

Tallest known coast redwoods measured by the Tall Trees Club:
All height accurate to (+ or -) two inches. Most of the trees listed were climbed and measured by direct tape drop. If not climbed, a Criterion 400 laser survey instrument was used, the most accurate know way to measure a tree without climbing it.
