Amazing! An avenue of Coast Redwood was definitely an unexpected find in Essex. Wickham Bishops boasts several avenues of Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) spread around Chantry Woods (now split into several smaller, named woods).
There are examples of all the usual sprouting-from-the-base tricks that have become quite familiar now in Coast Redwood, but also a small example of new trees sprouting from the side of a fallen trunk. (A younger version of those at: Leighton and Bretherton).
The trees, although a fairly substantial size by any other trees standard, are not particularly large compared to other Coast Redwoods found in the U.K. so they must be a far more recent planting than the Victorian era.
