Giant Redwood
Thanks to David for sending more details and photographs of Redwoods in the Chichester area.

David says, "The second tree is 5 miles away from Chichester in Slindon woods. It is a lone Sequoiadendron giganteum, but there is also a nice avenue of Sequoia sempervirens. The location is just off the A29 between Fontwell and Slindon. The wood is owned by the National Trust, there is a very good car park and all the trees are right beside a good footpath. The picture shows me trying to measure!

OS National Grid: SU 959 076
Height 32m
Girth 4.5m

Coast Redwood
Here are details of a nice avenue of “Sempervirens” at Slindon woods. The coast redwoods stretch about 200m along the path and there are some very young ones, so it looks like some have grown from cones. There were loads of cones on the ground, but they all seemed open, so I didn’t collect any. There are 5 nice large trees, plus the young ones. Several of the trees have double trunks and it was such a rotten day I did not measure them, but the 5 big ones range from around 24m tall and 2.8m girth to 21m and 2.5m girth.
