Do you know, The Tallest Tropical Tree is here in Sabah, Malaysia.
"|n the last few years exceptionally tall yellow meranti trees (Shorea faguetiana) have been discovered growing in Sabah. The record height of an individual jumped from 288 feet (88 meters) to 308.7 feet (94.1 meters) in 2016.
This discovery is the first 100-meter tropical tree (and the world's tallest known flowering plant) recorded anywhere in the world. If it were laid along the ground the tree would be longer than a soccer field. They estimated it weighs 81,500 kilograms, or more than the maximum takeoff weight of a Boeing 737-800, excluding roots."
