Clive Roddy Miniature Hyperion Tree

It's the world’s smallest, world's biggest tree!

Somewhere in California’s Redwood National Park stands Hyperion, the tallest tree alive on Earth. While the towering coast redwood’s exact location is undisclosed, one can still get a glimpse of it in its entirety. The miniature Hyperion tree is a replica of the record-breaking tree that you can hold in your hand. Encased in glass and standing on a wooden pedestal, it comes with a tiny human silhouette figure so you have an idea how high the real thing can be! Keep it as a souvenir, a conversation piece, or a pet plant. Either way, it’s as amazing to behold as the real-life tree that inspired it!

It’s a handmade miniature redwood tree model

In 2006, tree hunters and hikers Michael Taylor and Chris Atkins discovered what would be the tallest tree in the world—a 379-foot-tall, 600-year-old coast redwood—among a bunch of alike trees in California’s Redwood National Park. Humboldt State University ecologist Stephen Sillett climbed the tree and confirmed its height. It was called Hyperion, after the Titan of the same name in Greek mythology.

Apart from these three people and the park personnel, no one has ever been able to determine or visit Hyperion’s exact whereabouts. It’s kept secret to protect Hyperion from being carved on by visitors.

This giant inspired UK-based artist Clive Roddy to create the Miniature Hyperion Tree.

Awesome product features

  • A souvenir for keeps: One can only dream of getting an actual piece from Hyperion since its kind has been classified as endangered and thus heavily protected.
