This Giant Redwood is in front of a block of flats in Boyce Road. There is a small wall built around its base. A huge branch extends a couple of metres from the ground out, and then upwards, making the trunk at that point appear very wide. In fact, the usual 1.5m height rule used to measure a tree's girth would be rather tricky to follow in this case. No doubt it has been very well used by children for climbing!
