Giant Redwood - April 2009
The Giant Redwood at Green Corner House was built at the same time as the house itself, according to the present owner. A brick in the house says "July 1882", making them both nearly 127 years old in 2009. Apparantly the first owner of the house was called Mackenzie.

This Giant Sequoia is still looking majestic on the brow of the hill at 142 years old (in 2024). A mere whippersnapper in Redwood terms!
