I extrapolated the tree's height based on the fact that it took 3 days to disappear over the horizon, assuming that Faerie has the same curvature as Earth. Based on the tensile strength of wood, a tree of this height is theoretically possiple.

Height = ~2km
width = ~75m (based on a 3.5 height to diameter ratio)

Without further adu, here a pixel by pixel acurate drawing of the height



(remember, I said to scale not good. The photo is from http://www.lbdassociates.com/s...up/NYC%20Skyline.htm)

I prefer to live in a country that's small, and old, and where no one would ever have the NERVE to wear a cape in public, whether they could leap tall buildings in a single bound or not.
