969.50 hands is about one-and-three-tenths times as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree).
In other words, the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.770 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Sequoiadendron giganteum, a.k.a. Sierra redwood, a.k.a. Wellingtonia)
Giant Sequoias of the Giant Sequoia National Monument located in Sierra Nevada, near Visalia, California can grow to heights of 750 hands. The wood from the Giant Sequoias is often brittle and prone to shattering when such trees are felled, and as a result the trees logged in the late nineteenth century were often usable only as shingles or matchsticks.
