Giant Redwood September 2015
This was the second Giant Sequoia (aka Wellingtonia/Giant Redwood) found in Hoxne and the owners believe the tree may have been planted in the 1870's, when much work was done to the building and the grounds. This excellent specimen is just a few dozen yards from the one in the churchyard of St. Peter and St. Paul's. The trunk of this tree is considerably wider then the churchyard Wellingtonia, despite being a similar height. Perhaps the proximity of water has encouraged it to fill out more. The owners pointed out the existence of a third Wellingtonia some distance away in the grounds of Mullbery Cottage.
