    [Errata: (1) The proof of Lemma 13 given contains an error; see the proof of Theorem 1.1 of Addario-Berry, Devroye and Janson, Sub-Gaussian tail bounds for the width and height of conditioned Galton–Watson trees, Ann. Probab. 41, 2 (2013), pp.1072-1087 for a fix. (2) In the proof of Theorem 24 we invoke Brownian scaling in order to get a bound of the height of a tilted tree in terms of its size. This argument is invalid (Brownian scaling does not work for tilted excursions), but may be straightforwardly fixed using the measure change, the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality and the fact that the length of the longest excursion is a.s. finite.]
