Zmieniłem domyślną opcję na "high", ale "tall" nie jest błędne. To bardzo dyskusyjna kwestia nawet dla native'ów.
In my native UK English it's not quite as simple as your in|animate distinction (though high is indeed not used for human beings or animals):
A man or a giraffe may be tall (not high).
A tree can be either: a large, broader tree (e.g. chestnut) tends to be high; large, narrow trees (e.g. poplar; certain conifers) may be tall and high.
A wall, fence or mountain may be high (not tall - unless it's a pillar-shaped mountain...).
A building (block of flats, skyscraper, tower,...) whose height is visibly greater than its horizontal dimensions may be tall and high; a 'stumpy' block of flats that obliterates the horizon is high but not tall.
