Joe wrote to let us know about his four Coast Redwood. He said they "have been featured in Best of British Magazine and led me to being an Honorary Member of The Californian Redwood Association. Three of my trees were simply taken from cuttings from the original tree which was planted here ‘for Christmas’ in 1984. I have supplied numerous cuttings over the years to friends but only those planted in this part of Dorset have survived."

The original sapling was purchased from Yellowstone Park in 1981.
All measurements in the table below were taken by Joe's son in the first half of 2020.
