A dull day weather-wise but not so for Redwood discoveries in Herefordshire. This collection of ten young Wellingtonia trees were planted by the current owner of the nearby house. He was not surprised to hear that they have been planted rather close to each other as he had been thinking about thinning them out for some time. It seems a shame to cut down healthy young trees but sacrificing a few will allow the remaining ones more space to grow without cramping each other so much. The heights of the trees was between 6 and 8 metres in 2008.
A couple of weeks later Drew wrote to say "I have taken your advice and have cut 6 of the 10 down. I have cut nos 2.3.5.6.8.9."

After the inital surprise of seeing the gaps, I must say the remaining trees look better with more space around them.
