Another of those rare finds - a young Wellingtonia. This lovely little tree looks as though it is probably only around ten years old, and has the neat broad conical shape typical of juveniles of its kind. It is situated in the lawn of a large private house, with a good amount of space, so it likely it will grow to become a worthy specimen. Close by is a fine, mature Cedar, and as you will see from the picture it is dwarfed by the Cedar at the moment. Given time, however, there is little doubt that the Wellingtonia will see out the Cedar in both size and longevity.
