Eleven Redwoods were seen at Wilton House near Salisbury along the A30. Several are in the car park and in adjacent rough ground, but a large Giant Sequoia (40 metres high in 2011) and three Dawn Redwoods can be seen around the grassed areas. One superb example of Dawn Redwood has a plaque at its base that states:
