The grounds of the fire station at Great Dunmow hold this fine beast of a tree. This Giant Redwood stands alone on a patch of grass next to the buillding, and as you can see from the picture it easily dwarfs the surrounding buildings. I suppose one could say that with both its fire retarding bark, and it's location, it is doubly protected against fire!
