Wellingtonia
(Sequoiadendron giganteum)

Three Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens)
Holker Hall is among the locations of several Redwoods in Cumbria for which Nick kindly sent us details.

He says; "This specimen of a Wellingtonia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) is in the formal garden of Holker Hall. N 54 11.353 W 002 58.943"
and "Three Coast Redwoods stand together in the park lands of Holker Hall. N 54 11.476 W 002 59.208"

The only point I would make is that the shape of these three trees is more like that of a Giant Redwood than a Coast Redwood
so if someone can verify this please contact us.

Wellingtonia
(Sequoiadendron giganteum)
Thanks to Brian who wrote to say "I found a photo of one of these 3 trees at Holker Hall with my Border Terrier Scout . Definitely not sempervirens."

The photograph was taken last year and verifies my suspicions, these two types Redwoods can be confused unless you can get up close, as your Scout discovered!
