Bracknell - Lily Hill Park (Berkshire)
|Thanks to Colin for this photograph taken in May 2019 of "three Sequoiadendron giganteum Wellingtonia trees at Lily Hill Park in Bracknell, Berkshire, postcode RG12 2RX. Lily Hill Park was originally a private estate formed as a 19th century 'gentleman's residence' by Henry William Vincent. It is now a public park owned and managed by Bracknell Forest Council. Unfortunately, nothing is known about the history of these trees and because they are closely surrounded by 'ordinary' trees their height is also unknown. However, they appear to be substantially higher than the surrounding trees and very impressive. It's impossible to take a picture of a complete tree due to the surrounding trees."
I have often found this to be the case with trees that are in a woodland and therefore crowded but thanks for getting a good trunk shot.
The clear labelling is quite impressive.
