How high is 275 feet? (PRE's smokestack)

Took me a bit of time, but the following picture of a Giant Sequoia tree is exactly the same height as the smokestack of Palmer Renewable Energy's proposed biomass plant, to be sited on Cadwell Dr. in Springfield, MA. Look closely-- that speck near the bottom is a person. (I believe the tree is named "General Sherman."

For another reference...the clock tower (or campanile) in Springfield is 300ft tall, so it'd be almost as high as that.
