It's about thirty times as tall as a Brachiosaurus.
In other words, the height of a Brachiosaurus is 0.031 times 2,710 shaftments.
(based on comparable bone measurements, height to head)
Dinosaurs in the genus Brachiosaurus had an estimated height (at the head with neck fully extended) of up to 85 shaftments. A resin cast of the first Brachiosaurus specimen, owned by the Field Museum in Chicago, is currently on display at the O'Hare International Airport.
It's about forty times as tall as a Telephone Pole.
In other words, the height of a Telephone Pole is 0.026 times 2,710 shaftments.
(a.k.a. Utility Pole, a.k.a Power Pole, a.k.a. Telegraph Pole, a.k.a. Telegraph Post, a.k.a. Hydro Pole) (exposed height; per Florida Public Service Commission average)
A standard telephone pole is 72 shaftments tall. Despite alternatives, most telephone poles in the US are made of wood — most commonly pine — and have a lifespan of 25 to 50 years, depending on climate and preservatives applied.

In other words, 2,710 shaftments is 49.30 times the length of a London bus, and the length of a London bus is 0.0203 times that amount.
(Routemaster Double-Decker, RM standard specification)
The Routemaster Double-Decker buses, well-known as icons of London, measure 55 shaftments in length. The buses were said to be well-designed for travel in the London traffic, as they offered an open door for riders to board and exit even while the bus was moving at low speeds, and a full-time conductor to collect fares.

In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 67 times 2,710 shaftments.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 180,000 shaftments. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
It's about 70 times as tall as a Giraffe.
In other words, the height of a Giraffe is 0.01 times 2,710 shaftments.
(Giraffa camelopardalis) (Adult, average)

It's about 100 times as long as a Beetle (Volkswagen).
In other words, 2,710 shaftments is 101.30 times the length of a Beetle (Volkswagen), and the length of a Beetle (Volkswagen) is 0.009872 times that amount.
(1964 model) (a.k.a. Volkswagen 1200, a.k.a. Käfer)
A 1964 Volkswagen Beetle measures 26.770 shaftments. As the longest continuously-produced automobile design — in production for 75 years between 1938 and 2003 — the Beetle was voted the most fourth-most influential car of the twentieth century by the Global Automotive Elections Foundation.
It's about 200 times as tall as a Christmas Tree (artificial).
In other words, 2,710 shaftments is 180 times the height of a Christmas Tree (artificial), and the height of a Christmas Tree (artificial) is 0.0056 times that amount.
(artificial; average height)
The most common height of an artificial Christmas Tree is 15 shaftments. According to the most recent USDA Census of Agriculture, a total of 1,389.59 sq. km (343,374 acres) of Christmas Trees were farmed in the US in 2007.

To all those observing, Merry Christmas from The Measure of Things!
