As you travel down Woodhill Common Road in Danbury, you will pass these fine four Wellingtonia which sit just few feet from the road. They are quite close to one another, and the area around them is quite wooded, so it is difficult to see the upper part of them. The trunks, however, more than compensate for this with their nice clean lines, and lovely golden bark.
