The town of Arnprior, Ont., now has one tall order — the bragging rights to Ontario's tallest tree.

Just west of Ottawa, Arnprior is home to a 47-metre tall eastern white pine tree, which reaches higher than a 13-storey building.

The tree is more than 200 years old, which means it escaped loggers and developers for quite some time thanks to community support.

A towering red pine in Algonquin Park used to hold the record and foresters there are fighting to regain that title with a newly discovered yellow birch.
