The resident who has one of these Redwoods in his front garden looked puzzled when asked if he minded someone measuring the tree. Little did he know that this, along with the one standing in the garden next door, are among the broadest in England!

It is interesting to note that although these two trees are of similar height and girth, one has retained the neater juvenile Wellingtonia form, whereas the other has taken on a more open and voluminous shape typical of examples of this age.
