@BlackMage well the tree in Mexico is supposedly dying from pollution, but the other trees I don't know. It is also largely up to the discoverer to reveal the location or not
@minjaeturtles but the other trees are fine?
@BlackMage so people don't swarm to see the world's tallest tree and destroy nature
@minjaeturtles why is it kept a secret?
@lovemilkis maybe a researcher. but the location of the Hyperion is kept secret to ward off tourists
