A Giant Redwood and Coast Redwood on the Pleasure Walk


Azalia Drive has several Coast and Giant redwoods.
Thanks to Robbie, who is a groundsman at the Longleat Estate, for sending photographs and measurements of some of their redwoods. Robbie says,

"On our estate we have several very large coast redwoods and wellingtonias.

On our Pleasure Walk we have one very large and beautiful redwood. The giant sequoia is 45 metres high with a 7.3 metre girth. I measured the height with a Clinometer. In the recent storms several trees around it fell, including two douglas firs, but this mighty tree showed no effects. Also on the Pleasure Walk is the largest coast redwood I have found (we have several). Its height is 33.5 metres, with a girth of 7.1 metres.

There are several Coast and Giant Redwoods on Azalia Drive. The nearest giant sequoia in the top photograph has a 7.1m girth and is 40m high. The giant sequoia in the far left of the photo has the same girth and is 43m high.

Our forestry also has a large plantation of them. Since I have been there we have been planting many trees and several redwoods. The estate has many wonderful trees and would be well worth a visit.
