Giant Redwood - January 2007

Giant Redwood - March 2021
The first photograph was a late afternoon shot on a dull winter's day of the Wellingtonia in St. Nicholas' Church in January 2007.
The second photograph was taken on another rather overcast day fourteen years later in March 2021
They are at slightly different angles but the Giant Redwood has unmistakenly grown a good bit in height.

Giant Redwood - February 2022

Giant Redwood - February 2022
* * * Update - February 2022 * * *
Thanks to Paul for a girth measurement of this tree made in February 2022.
"4 metres 64 centimetres at 1.5 metres above ground level.
The vines had been cut at the base, the tree sits right on the border with a neighbouring private dwelling and NW to the Church."

I notice that your girth measurement for the tree in February 2022 is somewhat less than my own measurement in March 2021.
I must go back and see whether I blundered!
