    According to the Guinness Book of World Records:

    The tallest living tree today is the Mendocino Tree, a coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) found at Montgomery State Reserve near Ukiah, California, USA. In September 1998, it was 112 m (367.5 ft) tall, with a diameter of 3.14 m (10 ft).

    However the tallest recorded tree in history:

    A Eucalyptus regnans at Mt. Baw Baw, Victoria, Australian, is believed to have measured 143 m (470 ft.)1885. Formerly, another Australian eucalyptus, at Watts River, Victoria. almost certainly had been over 150 m (492 ft.) tall.

    Though the Mendocino tree may have been considered the tallest tree back in 98, 8 trees have been found to be taller since then.  At the top of the list is Hyperion, a coast redwood tree in northern California that measures a staggering 115.61 meters tall, or 379.29 feet.

    Also, I might add that historical measurements of trees being over 130 meters are debatable, since the technology involved in measurement was not as advanced as it is today.

    Hope this helps!
