Giant Redwood Trees - February 2024
Thanks to Ellie for sending the above photograph of four of the five Giant Redwood trees at High Trees.
Ellie wrote to say; "We have been told that the trees were planted in the 1800s, when the main house HighCroft Hall was built, approx 1850, they are indeed very tall and have TPOs. There are 5 in total as well as a very old Cedar Tree."

Thank you for letting me know about your trees, it must be great to have such specimen trees in ones own garden. They were first brought into Britain in 1852, so given the date of the house and their size, they certainly are likely to have been planted in the 1800's as you said.
