The reason that these two Giant Redwood trees at Cammas Hall are a little sparse is unclear, but it may be due to the very close proximity of the pond around the house. Although it normally an advantage for a Redwood to have a pond nearby, in this case it could be a little more wet around the roots than is ideal. Giant Redwood are not happy when waterlogged and this is the most likely explanation for their healthy but not especially lush appearance. The current owner was pleased to hear that reason for the loss of the lower branches lost on one of the trees is probably due to the closeness of the surrounding bushes and trees rather than a problem with the Redwoods. Nevertheless they are a fine pair of trees that compliment the variety of newly planted saplings in the rest of the grounds.
