At the front of this house in Iffley Road stands a nice pair of Giant Redwoods.

James wrote in June 2019 to tell us that "I lived at 235 Iffley road from 1946 to 1972 and know the redwood and cedar that were in our front garden. The redwood in front of 233 Iffley Road was damaged by the cold weather of the 1962-63 winter and the top died out. A side shoot sprang up and the tree then started to grow more vigorously than the one in front of 235. I suspect our tree (235) suffered from competition for water by the other redwood and the Cedar. At some stage there was a large branch which over hung the road, this began to die and had to removed.

It is quite interesting to see these trees in your register. We could always locate our house from the hills around Oxford, Boars Hill, Wytham woods and Shotover thanks to our trees.

It's always good to receive tales from people having a past connection with the Redwoods featured on the website, and it's interesting to hear a little of its history.
