The columns make the tower a popular place for rock climbers.Tribes have their own stories passed down through generations about how the jagged butte formed.That is not part of this formation so far as I can tell.- Carl Sagan The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts.Since, X&P are basically a (microscopic) straw for transport of water, the massive diameter of your alleged tree X&P means a tremendous amount of suction would have to be generated to lift water at all much less lift it all the way to the top of your outrageously tall tree!Basically, it seems that transpiration is only viable to about 130 meters with normal bundles of xylem and phloem cells ( and not feasible with sewer pipe sized X&P and a conjectured height of 300 meters!! Redwoods/Sequoias typically reach about 90 meters and have roots extending out about 15 m (and intertwine with roots from other trees), so a tree 300 meters tall with a mile of circumference around the base would likely need something much much wider.

That is not part of this formation so far as I can tell.
