Southborough - Pinewood Gardens (Kent)
|Thanks to Richard for writing to from Kent saying "My 5-year-old son has become very interested in Redwoods and we recently discovered some in our home town of Southborough, near Tunbridge Wells, Kent. I think they are Wellingtonia based on their cones but not sure. There are, I think, 7 in this patch. The location is between St Andrews Ct, Southborough, Tunbridge Wells TN4 0LZ and the Ridgeway playing fields."

Five years old is very young to be starting an interest in Redwoods, I hope it lasts! The trees are definitely Wellingtonia, thanks for including the close up photograph of the cones, that was a great idea because it is one of the most specific identifying characterstics of these trees. Good luck spotting more in the future with your son.
