Yes, it sure is tall! I think I was conservative saying it is 100 feet tall...most likely closer to 120 feet tall.

It looks top-heavy.
I guess it would sway a lot in a storm ? !

I believe these trees are very wind-resistant. I've never seen branches fall from these trees in strong winds, however, I don't have one in my yard.
