It's about one-fiftieth as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree)
In other words, the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 50 times 59 inches.(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 3,000 inches. 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.

It's about one-seventieth as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch
In other words, 59 inches is 0.0143 times the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch, and the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 69.90 times that amount.(a.k.a. Football Field, a.k.a. Soccer Field) (field length, a.k.a. touchline distance)
According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 4,130 inches (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 4,140 inches, and later converted to the metric units used today).

It's about one-seventy-fifth as long as a Football field
In other words, 59 inches is 0.0136574 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 73.22040 times that amount.(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 4,320 inches from end to end. Because each team's goalpost is located at the far end of the scoring area (end zone), a ball on a scoring play may need to travel as many as 360 inches farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
