we sell that one.
I’m not sure where you are getting the info about the fossil tree in Thailand, but the one you are referring to at Bantak Petrified Wood Forest Park was measured upon excavation at 72.2 m, present day it is 69 m; that being said, it IS the longest petrified wood specimen IN THE WORLD, not the second.
I see it every day due conducting my research in the park, so I’m 100% sure of this.
