  • Tall Trees

    G'day all

    Well- a single tree anyway - and no so tall that its shadow becomes lost in the distance

    As always, feedback welcome

    Interesting to think that the shadow though a good representation of the real thing bears no relation to its size. Which means we will have to take your word for the fact it was tall. Was it a Norfolk Pine?

    Better a full bottle in front of me
    than a full frontal lobotomy.

      Easy to measure the tree height Phil.
      Measure the length of the tree's shadow, multiply it by YOUR height then divide the result by Your shadow length.
      eg: Tree shadow is 13 metres long X your height (1.8 metres) ÷ YOUR shadow length (2.6 metres) = TREE HEIGHT (9 metres).
      13 X 1.8 = 23.4
      23.4 ÷ 2.6 = 9
