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 sapling was orignally purchased from Yellowstone Park in 1981.
In early 2020 Joe's son obtained a girth measurement of the original tree at 14’ 6" and calculated the height at 72’ 6”.
(4.4 metres girth and 22 metres height).
In the Spring Joe hoped to obtain individual photographs and measurements of the three ‘cuttings’.
