Thanks to David for letting us know about another Giant Sequoia he found in Lancashire. "Whilst I was at Levens hall I spotted a Giant Sequoia in the distance towering above the treeline. A quick drive down the A6 towards a hamlet called Leasgill revealed a driveway up to a former stately home called Eversley. At the start of the driveway stood the magnificent sequoia, a really impressive tree. It had slight damage to the bark at the base and was weeping a dark substance. Other than that it appeared in fine fettle."

The damage to the tree may have been caused by a lightning strike, I wonder whether when the upper part of the tree is struck the bolt also jumps out to the damp ground from the lower part of the trunk, I could be wrong perhaps someone more familiar with these events could enlightning us!
